X9 and CSA join forces to boost cloud security standards! This partnership elevates best practices for financial services and beyond.

The Accredited Standards Committee X9 Inc. (X9) and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) have entered a formal liaison agreement. The CSA is a not-for-profit organization that promotes best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. X9 is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to develop U.S. financial services industry standards. The agreement is effective immediately.

Under the agreement’s terms, X9 will share its draft cloud computing standards with the CSA, whose experts will review, evaluate and deliver feedback to X9. The organizations will hold periodic discussions to assess issues and needs related to cloud computing standards. CSA will also provide input on new cloud computing standards, which X9 will seek to address where possible.

“We look forward to working with the CSA to help optimize X9 standards associated with cloud computing,” said X9 Executive Director Steve Stevens. “This liaison agreement is a milestone to secure and effective cloud computing, and all — X9, the CSA, the financial services industry and consumers — will reap the benefits.”

“CSA’s core mission is to provide and promote best practices to help organizations secure their most valuable assets in the cloud. We are excited to be working with X9 to further develop and enhance cloud computing standards within the financial services industry and for those technologies that are increasingly reliant on cloud services,” said Jim Reavis, CEO and co-founder, Cloud Security Alliance.
