There are many standards out there for the cloud. SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) for federation, SPML (Service Provisioning Markup Language), and many others. But there are as well many standards missing, either directly related to security or in some relation to security – like service management standards, given that SLAs (Service Level Agreements) and service descriptions are a key for measuring service fulfillment and thus managing risk and security issues. Obvious shortcomings are in the field of governance and auditing. In this panel, several experts will discuss the state and the lacks of standards as well as their expectations regarding the adoption of existing and new standards by vendors.
Today’s IT environments blend applications and services from multiple public cloud networks, private clouds and on-prem networks, making it difficult to view and inventory assets deployed across complex hybrid networks, and keep track of the security risks. Organizations need to find a way to improve visibility, identify and prioritize risks, and maintain cyber resiliency.
