Exploring Information Stewardship with the Cloud Ecosystem Model

The emergence of cloud computing has transformed the way in which enterprise IT is delivered and creates new challenges around risk management, security strategy, and control over policies and information. For a particular example, the economies of scale that can be achieved by large cloud service providers are encouraging ecosystems of service providers in which the marketplace (rather than the consuming enterprises or individuals) determines security standards. The problem goes beyond core security concerns, since all cloud stakeholders will be relying on others to steward their information, and so will be concerned with the overall sustainability and resilience of the ecosystem, from both security and business perspectives.
