We circulated the “How Cloud is Being Used in the Financial Sector” survey to IT and security professionals in financial services institutions. The goal was to further the discussion to these topics:
Describe your company’s approach to cloud computing.
Describe your private cloud policy.
What is your corporate risk assessment to cloud computing?
What features would you require from cloud providers?
What is your primary reason for adopting cloud computing?
Beyond raising awareness around cloud service adoption, the findings of the survey provide insight into how decision
makers in the financial services industry take action in their organization – from consolidating and standardizing on the most secure cloud services, to knowing which policies to apply to mitigate risks, and understanding where to focus when educating users.
