Cvent Reinforces Commitment to Data and Information Security by Obtaining Renowned CSA STAR Certification
Sept 11, 2019 – Cvent, a market leader in events and hospitality technology, announced today that the company has obtained its certification under the Cloud Security Alliance Security Trust Assurance and Risk (CSA STAR) Program. This serves as Cvent’s second major compliance achievement of 2019, after receiving its ISO 27001 Certification in April. CSA STAR Certification is obtained through a process of self and independent evaluation against a set of cloud security principles, the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM).
“The goal of our data and information security practices is to ensure ironclad cloud solutions, and these certifications and accreditations demonstrate our continued commitment to a secure customer experience across our entire platform,” said Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer of Cvent, Ben Mayrides.
As part of its CSA STAR certification, Cvent will also be listed on the CSA’s public registry, enabling customers to transparently assess the company as a security partner. Only those Cloud Service Providers who undergo and pass the CCM evaluations obtain a listing on the registry. As a result, Cvent can now publish information about the company’s security safeguards and practices that’s been validated by a trusted third party.
“This type of transparency and transitive trust promotes even more assurance by virtue that anyone – be it a customer, prospect, or stakeholder – can independently and efficiently evaluate Cvent’s security capabilities,” continued Mayrides. “As a market-leading technology provider with more than 27,000 customers around the world, it’s imperative that we offer the highest levels of data security and compliance. We’re proud to add this accreditation and enhanced level of transparency, which highlight our continued commitment to delivering world-class solutions and service.”
