Cloud Computing Risk & Security

Will risk rain on your move to the cloud?

A Deloitte survey on cloud adoption in Europe revealed that for a panel of CIOs who have not yet adopted cloud computing, the main inhibitors are: Insufficient data security and risk of data availability ; Open compliance and legal issues ; The risk of losing governance or control over data

In this context, organisations are seeking reassurance regarding the ability of cloud computing to provide an effectively secure and controlled environment.

How Deloitte can help?

Deloitte can help organisations to address the underlying challenges raised by cloud computing and the move of IT assets, users and data outside of the traditional network perimeter:

  • Security – Assessing and Defining security solutions which are effective in a cloud computing architecture
  • Data Privacy – Protecting confidential and private information which migrate to places outside the network boundaries
  • Regulatory Compliance – Ensuring compliance with national and industry regulatory requirements
  • Social & Legal – Defining policies that comply with the applicable legal and social requirements

Our approach & methodology

Deloitte has developed mature proprietary risk assessment frameworks as well as a specific security methodology in order to address challenges and risks raised by cloud services and models (IaaS, PaaS or SaaS) across their deployment lifecycle.
