Cloud Computing Policy
The list of advantages to cloud computing include lowered operational costs, greater technological flexibility and the ability to rapidly implement new systems or services. Gains in business continuity are an especially noteworthy attraction to cloud services, which operate via remote systems that remain running in the event of a local disaster, such as a hurricane or power outage.
The purpose of this policy from TechRepublic Premium is to provide guidelines for secure and effective cloud computing operations to ensure the integrity and privacy of company-owned information.
From the policy:
CLOUD COMPUTING POLICY DETAILS
Only approved cloud storage vendors shall be selected for use — preferably business-oriented options and not consumer choices. Where possible, the fewest number of vendors (ideally one) should be retained. Vendor selection should be based upon price, availability, compatibility with organizational needs and the ability to deliver specific service levels. Cloud computing vendors must also meet IT department or office of security standards involving the protection, storage and (if necessary) restoration of data.
