- confidence : A survey of cloud users reveals regulatory failure to keep up with developments in technology is eroding confidence in cloud computing. (†1710)
- confidence : The top ten factors eroding confidence in cloud computing are: 1. Government regulations keeping pace with the market; 2. Exit strategies; 3. International data privacy; 4. Legal issues; 5. Contract lock in; 6. Data ownership and custodian responsibilities; 7. Longevity of suppliers; 8. Integration of cloud with internal systems; 9. Credibility of suppliers; 10. Testing and assurance. ¶Greg Grocholski, international president of ISACA, said it is interesting that governance issues recur repeatedly on the list of the top 10 concerns. “Cloud users recognise the value of this model, but are wrestling with such questions as data ownership, legal issues, contract lock-in, international data privacy and government regulations,” said Grocholski.
