Managing fraud risks in a cloud computing environment
Cloud computing is increasingly being adopted by organizations worldwide (as well as in India) due to its ease, cost benefits and flexibility in usage. However, despite the benefits, cloud computing has also exposed individuals and organizations to various security and fraud related threats.
The Deloitte India Forensic practice has released a whitepaper that attempts to sensitize organizations to the various risks associated with different cloud computing models, and the importance of developing a robust cloud computing environment with forensic-ready investigation infrastructure. The document also covers potential hurdles that companies face while managing fraud risks associated with cloud computing and how those could have an impact on a digital forensic investigation.
