- There are data governance, privacy and legal issues that are associated with ventures into the cloud. Who owns the data and how do they assure that the data is not made available to nascent third parties who have no business accessing it?
- When sharing data, are appropriate procedures, such as sharing agreements, put in place to ensure that any Personally identifiable information remains strictly confidential and protected from unauthorized disclosure?
- Does your organization constantly monitor in real time your networks, systems and applications for unauthorized access or anomalous behavior such as viruses, malicious code insertion, or break-in attempts?
- Do you have KPIs that are oriented toward general performance capabilities measure processes rather than discrete project initiatives? Do they answer questions such as: how well are you doing financially?
- Does your organization regularly review and revise its data content management policies to assure that only the already stated data necessary for meeting direct needs are collected and/or maintained?
- Does your organization have any software product that has a tuning process i.e. when one part changes or has new components added or a different vendor adds something to it, all parts are evaluated?
- Has your organization instituted processes and procedures for involving the security personnel in evaluating and addressing any security impacts before the purchase or introduction of new systems?
