Cloud Security Alliance and IEEE join forces
The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and IEEE are joining forces to ensure that best practices and standards are developed and available to provide security assurance for cloud computing. As a result of this collaboration, CSA and IEEE have been conducting a survey to identify and define the most critical security concerns surrounding enterprise cloud computing.
The survey was completed by hundreds of IT professionals who are actively involved in implementing cloud-related projects. CSA and IEEE will announce their findings at the RSA Conference.
“Since founding the Cloud Security Alliance, our members have been committed to defining a set of best practices that will enable their organizations to embrace their cloud initiatives without compromising their security posture,” said Jim Reavis, founder of the Cloud Security Alliance. “As one of the world’s oldest and most respected computing organizations, the IEEE and their global membership will help us gain valuable insight into which cloud security concerns are most pressing. Once we fully understand these priorities, we will be able to better define new standards that will improve all aspects of cloud security.”
“The true promise of cloud computing will only be realized if all aspects of security are addressed and communicated in a truly open and collaborative manner,” said Judy Gorman, Managing Director, IEEE-SA. “Both CSA and the IEEE bring a unique and informed perspective to the table and this survey will help set the agenda for developing a comprehensive set of cloud security standards.”
