New Singapore Standard on Cloud Security
Cloud computing offers great potential in reducing cost and increasing flexibility to the enterprise; however, wide-spread adoption is hindered for many organisations by the inability of the Information Owners to make informed, risk-based decisions relating to the adoption of cloud services.
SS 584 Specification for Multi-tier Cloud Computing Security aims to lower these recognised barriers through 2 methodologies:
a) employment of a multi-tiered framework allowing a single common standard to be applied by Cloud Service Providers to meet differing cloud user needs for data sensitivity and business criticality;
b) disclosure and security reporting to improve information transparency and visibility of risks associated with Cloud Service and security practices of the Cloud Service Providers.
SS 584 is available for sale at the Singapore Standards eshop.
