Don't Fear the Cloud
Security professionals at organizations adopting cloud computing solutions must put in place policies, processes and relationships that will result in keeping enterprise data safe. This industry perspective recommends:
- Adopting high-level information security policies as well as granular procedures and standards for implementing those policies;
- Including specific security provisions, such as breach notification methods and compliance strategies, in contracts with cloud vendors;
- Creating formal processes for reviewing and proving the effectiveness of cloud implementations.
