Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the security risks of cloud computing, part of Cloud Computing First Look (2012).
Cloud computing is indeed gaining traction with businesses all over the world and the …benefits seem overwhelming, but before you dive right in, you should be aware of the risks. …When searching for the right cloud vendor for you, be sure to raise the following security …issues if they apply to your organization. Number one, sensitive data that is processed …outside of your organization comes with an inherent level of risk because outsource services …bypass the typical, physical, logical and personal controls that IT departments exert …over in-house programs.…
So you should get as much information as you can about the people who manage your data …and ask providers to supply specific information on the hiring and oversight of privileged …administrators and the controls over their access. …Next, you the customer are ultimately responsible for the security and the integrity of your …own data, even when it's held by a service provider. So use a cloud computing provider …who's willing to undergo the scrutiny of the external audits and security certifications …
David also presents an overview of migration and common cloud technologies as you contemplate a move to the cloud, including Google Apps, Microsoft Windows Live, and more. The final chapter outlines how to evaluate the ongoing effectiveness of the cloud for your business.
