Understanding Compliance in the Cloud

While many CSPs claim their cloud infrastructure is compliant, it’s important to take a closer look. There are various third-party certifiers, as well as agencies and industry groups that offer best practices and guidelines. While each of the various security standards involve a mix of requirements in order to achieve certification, some security mechanisms remain constant regardless of the standard.

A closer look at each of the standards, the challenges they present and the questions to ask, will help determine which CSP may best meet your particular compliance needs.


Increasing adoption of the cloud enables IT organizations to lower infrastructure costs and provider greater agility to support users and customers. However, the cloud also increases the complexity of IT security as IT organizations must rely on the cloud service providers’ (CSPs) ability to secure data and meet critical compliance standards.

In order for the relationship to work, the client must verify that the cloud services partner not only contributes to its business goals, objectives and future needs but also meets or exceeds the measures it takes to mitigate risks. In other words, CSP must provide assurances that it keeps client data safe from security threats. Clients should discuss their needs with their provider to determine how the CSP can best provide assurance that the required controls are in place.
