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.

Summary

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.

Clients We Work With

  • Association Resource Group is an award-winning technology consulting and brokerage firm with over 25 years as an industry-leader.

    We have been Evolve DaaS clients for just about 2 years. What execs really need to know is how much productivity DaaS brings to an organization. We have estimated that each employee saves 10 minutes a day in startup and shutdown time. Probably another 5 minutes a day in work from home productivity - i.e. more likely to log in from their home PC than if they had to carry a laptop home every night and no clunky VPN or Citrix session to dissuade them from getting on.

    So, 15 minutes a day, that is 3% of their day back. 3% of an $80,000 a year employee is $2,500.

    DaaS has a 300% return, with no capital at risk. That is what I would tell your execs. Feel free to ask questions.

    Best!
