Mapping Cloud Security Controls to Existing Frameworks or Regulations

Discussion Topic
This discussion focuses on mapping cloud security controls to existing frameworks or regulations.
You will need to create 1 new thread AND post AT LEAST 2 comments on other students’ threads. Here’s how to get started:
Download the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Cloud Controls Matrix  spreadsheet. (A quick Internet search should give you the address of the  most current version for download.) Under the “Scope Applicability”  heading, select a category that is applicable to the organization for  which you work. For example, if your organization handle personal  medical data and uses the COBIT framework, you could choose either COBIT  or HIPAA/HITECH. Once you select a category, choose  row from “Control  Domain” (that no other student has already selected!) Then, create a new  thread in this week’s discussion with the title from column B (i.e. CCM  V3.0 Control ID.) Explain the control domain, how it maps to your  chosen scope, and specifically what your organization does to implement  the stated control.
If you don’t know which scope applies to your organization,  just use the University of the Cumberlands (UC) as your organization. As  a university, we are under the domain of FERPA, So, is you choose UC,  you would need to choose a Control Domain and explain how it maps to  FERPA, and how UC implements the controls. 
So, here’s an example. Let’s suppose I work for a large  on-line retailer. We handle payment cards and are therefore under PCI  DSS requirements. I’ll select BCR-03 control ID (Business Continuity  Planning.) So I would create a new thread in this week’s discussion with  the title “BCR-03.” Then I’d explain what BCR-03 is, what it maps to in  PCI DSS (4.1, 4.1.1, 9.1, 9.2), and then I’d explain what my  organization does to comply with this control requirement. 
Once you create your new thread, you need to find AT LEAST 2  other threads from other students and comment on their threads. Make  sure your comments are more than “I agree”, or “Good post.”
