What Is CAIQ?

CAIQ, or the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire, is a tool developed by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) to facilitate the assessment of cloud service providers' security capabilities. It is closely linked to the CCM (Cloud Control Matrix), which provides a framework for assessing the overall security posture of cloud services.

It provides a set of yes-or-no questions that are intended to be used by cloud consumers to gauge the security posture of prospective cloud service providers. The CAIQ questions cover various security domains, such as compliance, data governance, facility security, human resources security, information security, and operations management.

This standardized questionnaire helps streamline the due diligence process and provides a clear and concise way for organizations to compare the security practices of different cloud providers.
