Strategic, company-wide cloud adoption is taking hold as new technologies to secure cloud applications gain a greater foothold. This Blueprint is designed to help you control and mitigate security risks and concerns. As security professionals it is your responsibility to examine, synthesize, and mitigate all of the security risks which together create the last major obstacle to SaaS embracement. Use this blueprint to:
- Determine your organization's cloud risk profile
- Evaluate vendors’ security capability completeness based on your organization’s SaaS risk profile.
- Evaluate vendors’ auditable levels of their certifications and security testing.
- Evaluate vendors’ governability by assessing transparency.
- Evaluate vendors’ portability by assessing their interoperability.
- Determine the continuing procedures and policies that should be developed and deployed for continual security.
Use this storyboard in conjunction with the project blueprint, Ensure Cloud Security in a SaaS Environment.
