Cloud Security Checklist
Much of the debate about cloud computing focuses on operational and financial benefits but recent questions have developed regarding data security.
While we at PacTec believe we have the most security conscious enterprise grade solution in the Australian market, we recently read an intensive and encompassing article by Chenxi Wang Ph.D of Forrester Research which we believe that all participants can utilise.
The research breakdown of such issues as:
- Data protection and integrity
- Vulnerability and identity management
- Physical, personnel and application security
- Incidence response
- SLAs and liability
- End of contract coverage
… are well worth reading and considering.
As always, the naysayers and vested interest groups will delay the move to cloud for as long as possible while the acolytes continue their march toward corporate IT salvation.
