Cloud computing has tremendous potential for organisations of all sizes; it also brings with it a specific set of risks, ranging from access management and business continuity through to data protection compliance. Cloud computing risk was very much on the agenda at this year’s RSA conference; we’ve also recently published a book which focuses very specifically on managing risk in the cloud. Titled ‘Above the Cloud: Managing RIsk in the World of Cloud Computing’, it seems to be hitting the spot in terms of providing specific guidance to security and IT professionals about this specific area of risk. It is also available from our US site.
