Examples; 10 of the 994 standard requirements:

  1. Which process, application and information can be moved to the cloud to gain efficiency and cost benefits while satisfying your organizations security and compliance requirements?

  2. Do you conduct security training for the relevant staff with appropriate procedures for reporting and acting on unauthorised activity and misuse of confidential information?

  3. When the application resides in the cloud and the corporate firewall blocks incoming communications, how does the print data securely get to a printer behind that firewall?

  4. How as cloud consumers, do you satisfy ourselves that the cloud service providers are doing the right thing and implementing sufficient and effective security controls?

  5. Does your cloud security vulnerability countermeasures and network hardening tool enable a cloud best practice for its business continuity and growth in general?

  6. Will managing security using on-premises infrastructure that is managed by inhouse IT staff contribute more to the bottom line than using a cloud-based provider?

  7. How does your solution address any digital security challenges regarding securing the device, securing the network and the cloud, or securing the communication?

  8. How do human, technology, organization and environmental factors in relation to security encourage/discourage organizations Cloud computing adoption?

  9. Which best represents the role security played or is playing in your decision to implement your cloud initiatives via a private versus public cloud?

  10. What regulatory and security requirements must a cloud service provider meet, as control over the physical location of the application and its data?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Cloud Computing Security projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Cloud Computing Security and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Cloud Computing Security investments work better.

This Cloud Computing Security All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
