    What Does Cloud Computing Offer? - Cloud Computing Security Risks

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    We’ve spent a great deal of time talking about how revolutionary and exciting cloud computing can be -- in other words, all of the pros. According to online security experts, there are some pitfalls, and they have to do with security.

    According to the Gartner analyst firm, cloud computing is fraught with security risks and “smart customers will ask tough questions and consider getting a security assessment from a neutral third party before committing to a cloud vendor.” Gartner explained this point in a report entitled "Assessing the Security Risks of Cloud Computing."

    The report goes on to explain that cloud computing has "unique attributes that require risk assessment in areas such as data integrity, recovery, and privacy, and an evaluation of legal issues in areas such as e-discovery, regulatory compliance, and auditing.” Here are seven security issues Gartner believes customers should raise with vendors before choosing them as their vendor:

    1. Privileged user access
    2. Regulatory Compliance
    3. Data Location
    4. Data segregation
    5. Recovery
    6. Investigative support
    7. Long term viability

    As you can see, cloud computing is still a new concept. Though it has a lot to offer -- as Goldman pointed out -- we’ll just have to wait and see who takes advantage of the technology, who gets lost in the shuffle, and how it revolutionizes the IT world.
