The 4th version of the StarAudit Catalogue is coming soon
Over the past 12 months, we have worked very intensively on updating the StarAudit Catalogue and amending it with controls in connection with the GDPR. It has been a long journey to which many people actively made important contributions, and a number of small corrections were made as well.
NEW CONTROL CATALOGUE
The 4th version of the Control Catalogue is now finally ready. The core improvement in the new version is the introduction of a new control area, namely Area 07 “Data Protection”. The existing control areas, especially Area 03, were also evaluated in terms of their coherency with the new area and adapted accordingly.
NEW GDPR AREA
The new Area 7 features nearly 30 new controls addressing the requirements for cloud providers under the European General Data Protection Regulation. It does not represent a GDPR certificate (for data processors), however; rather, it is intended as a suitable and comprehensive list of requirements that a data controller (i.e. the cloud service customer) can expect from its data processor (i.e. the cloud service provider).
DOWNLOAD & AVAILABILITY
The new StarAudit Catalogue will be made available within the next few days through the StarAudit website.
INTEGRATION INTO THE ASSESSMENT TOOL
In the next few weeks we will implement the new version of the Catalogue into the StarAudit Assessment Tool. We expect this to be online in the beginning of June and we will announce it through a separate message as soon as the new version will become the standard for all Audits and Self Assessments.
