Call for Cloud Security Guidelines Heard

Chief information security officers concerned about software services’ security in the cloud

Infosecurity Europe, which granted is a show but one takes things as one finds them, says it surveyed 470 organizations and found that 75% of them intend to reallocate or increase their budgets to secure cloud computing and software as a service in the next 12 months.

It also interviewed a panel of 20 chief information security officers (CISOs - a new ‘C') of large enterprises only to learn that they are concerned about the availability and security aspects of software services in the cloud. It said they were particularly concerned about the lack of standards for working in the cloud, SaaS and secure Internet access. All of them reportedly said they would welcome the development of guidelines.
