"A Risk-based Approach to Protecting Information in the Cloud"

It’s no longer a question of “if clouds are secure?” Rather the question is how are you going to ensure that employees make appropriate use of and interact safely with applications from cloud service providers? Cloud governance, visibility and control are critical issues that need to be addressed. For many organizations cloud strategy still lags cloud use.
