A Series on Data Excellence
Meet the Experts
⇨ Are compliance personnel adequately involved in the evaluation and selection of cloud providers?
⇨ Do compliance personnel have transparency on where data is and who has access to what data?
⇨ Is there clarity on the roles and responsibilities of who owns security and compliance within the cloud service provider and internal teams?
Compliance, like security, is a non-negotiable goal, and one that is increasingly complex. Cloud computing has clearly compounded this challenge with additional requirements such as encryption, auditing, data location, and data separation rules. While several factors are involved, organizations can increase confidence in their IT staff by addressing these common questions and avoid common pitfalls.
