Examples; 10 of the 996 standard requirements:

  1. How to design Information Services with a methodological approach, beginning from conceptual and functional building blocks down to operational requirements satisfying specific service levels?

  2. Is there evidence that the facility (or at service level) has a register that details the completed policy, procedure and protocol reviews and a prioritized schedule for future reviews?

  3. Are the contractual agreements appropriate in type, scope and level of detail for the protection requirements of the data and the applications connected with the cloud service usage?

  4. Can blockchains improve the transparency of the billing process and SLA compliance of cloud service providers, and therefore reduce the need for a customer to trust the provider?

  5. What are the required investments (time and money) versus the anticipated benefits (savings and service level improvements) of each option to your shareholders and stakeholders?

  6. Does the agreement set out service levels, response and resolution times, levels of acceptable downtime, and levels of problem escalation that are acceptable to the customer?

  7. How the service level parameters defined and enforced for setting up user accounts, managing accesses, administering file permissions and addressing the operational requests?

  8. Is there documented evidence that the facility (or at service level) has a quality improvement plan that details the improvement actions taken, based on the gaps identified?

  9. Does the metering service provider use or intend to use subContractors to perform any of its responsibilities under the rules or applicable service level procedure?

  10. When your business is already running lean and delivering quality results, what do you do to further increase productivity and service levels and even reduce costs?
