Advisory Note: Cloud Provider Assurance - 70586

Report Details

Can an organization trust an IT service provided through the Cloud? A survey by KuppingerCole showed that “Cloud security issues (84.4%) and Cloud privacy and compliance issues (84.9%) are the major inhibitors preventing organizations from moving to a private Cloud.” The answer to this question can be found in the old Russian maxim, which was often quoted by President Ronald Regan: “trust but verify”.

Cloud services are outside the direct control of the customer organization, and their use places control of the IT service and infrastructure in the hands of the CSP (Cloud Service Provider). This fits with the KuppingerCole IT Paradigm for IT Governance. A governance based approach allows trust in the CSP to be assured through a combination of internal processes, standards and independent assessments.

The governance process starts with a clear understanding of the business requirements for the service. The risks and the technical, compliance and legal requirements follow directly from these business needs. These business needs, technical requirements and risks form the basis for what needs to be assured.

Why Digital Trust Is at the Top Of CXOs’ Agenda… Even if They Don’t Realise It
Ben King

When thinking about the C-suite’s priorities, people tend to focus on growth, security, digital transformation or, more recently, keeping a remote workforce running. All of these aspects are important to keep the business profitable, remain at the forefront of innovation, maintain shareholder satisfaction and ensure that employees are safe, equipped and content. Yet, there is something that underpins every one of these priorities: digital trust. And without it, every area of the business [...]
