Security Risks With Enterprise Cloud

Gartner Research has identified seven specific areas of security risk (Assessing the Security Risks of Cloud Computing” Gartner, June 3, 2008.) associated with enterprise cloud computing, and recommends that organizations address several key issues when selecting a cloud hosting provider:

1. Access privileges – Cloud service providers should be able to demonstrate
they enforce adequate hiring, oversight and access controls to enforce
administrative delegation.
2. Regulatory compliance – Enterprises are accountable for their own data even
when it’s in a public cloud, and should ensure their providers are ready and
willing to undergo audits.
3. Data provenance – When selecting a provider, ask where their datacenters are
located and if they can commit to specific privacy requirements.
4. Data segregation – Most public clouds are shared environments, and it
is critical to make sure hosting providers can guarantee complete data
segregation for secure multi-tenancy.
5. Data recovery – Enterprises must make sure their hosting provider has the
ability to do a complete restoration in the event of a disaster.
6. Monitoring and reporting – Monitoring and logging public cloud activity is
hard to do, so enterprises should ask for proof that their hosting providers can
support investigations.
7. Business continuity – Businesses come and go, and enterprises should ask
hard questions about the portability of their data to avoid lock-in or potential
loss if the business fails.
