The CSA Nexus Tool

For security professionals


Practical research and expert advice at your fingertips.

Get your job done better, faster.

The CSA Nexus is an interactive library of the most up-to-date research in information security on the web.

It provides pragmatic research on security topics that tell you exactly what you need to know, backed with industry-leading expert advice to answer your questions. The Nexus was designed to be fast and easy to use, and to get you the information you need as quickly as possible.

Get immediate help on a topic from our expert analysts, rate their answers, and refer back to it in your personal Q&A file for quick reference.


Work Smarter with Pragmatic, Applicable Research

Research in the Nexus has one (and only one) purpose: Help you successfully execute on your project responsibilities. The documents are clearly focused on what you need to know, whether it's selecting a new firewall or getting ready for a PCI assessment. There are templates, action lists, and videos and other dynamic content, all focused on your success. It also includes the latest community research from the CSA, and pre-publication material.

Direct Answers from Experienced Professionals

Our exclusive Ask an Analyst system allows you to submit questions to our staff and receive instant alerts when your answer is ready. All your answers are stored in the system in case you need them again someday. Or, if you prefer, you can submit your question to the community of your peers. There's no limit on the number of questions you can ask, and the best answers are anonymized and fed back into the system to help others.

Easy Navigation

Time you spend lost in a labyrinth of content is time you are not working on your projects. The Nexus is organized in a clean, easy to navigate hierarchy. It includes a dynamic help system that shows you what to do, not merely bounce you to a user guide. The user experience ensures you get to *exactly* what you are looking for.

Memory is Fleeting. The Nexus is Not.

We understand how frustrating it is to see something you really need, but forgetting where you found it. The Nexus provides a comprehensive history of what you've seen, so you can get back there quickly. You also have an option to store content in your own personal library, so you can find it at all times. Without knowing anything about the Dewey Decimal System.

See It Your Way

Maybe you like to explore a topic bit by bit or, maybe you want to see it all at once. The Nexus doesn't make you choose, providing both an dynamic view (to navigate content hierarchically) or an eBook-like reader view.

Love It or Hate It

Subscribers can comment and rate every single piece of content in the system... and even add their own recommendations. You get to tell us what's wrong and what needs to be improved.
