Using Cloud Services? How are You Managing Risk?
Most organizations are “in the cloud” to some degree. You may be running Office 365 for Email or you may be using a cloud based Enterprise Resource Planning or Accounting package. If you think that moving your systems to the cloud has eliminated risk, you should make sure you have considered these controls and know what your vendors are doing to protect your data:
1) What is being backed up and how frequently
2) What access controls are in place to prevent unauthorized access
3) What is the service level agreement (SLA) that is in place (i.e. what does your vendor guarantee for availability) and what happens if that SLA is breached
