This 2015 Hong Kong Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) Cloud Adoption, Security
and Privacy Readiness Survey was conducted by the Internet Society Hong Kong and the
Cloud Security Alliance Hong Kong and Macau Chapter, who commissioned the Hong Kong
Productivity Council (Council) to carry out telephone interviews with SMEs (<100 employees)
in Hong Kong. The process was carried out over the course of three weeks and reviewed
data from the Census and Statistics Bureau. The Council successfully collected
168responses for the survey. The research covered major industry sectors in Hong Kong.
The survey questionnaire was developed based on the Cloud Security Alliance Cloud
Controls Matrix and international standards with questions adapted to local conditions. The
survey was sponsored by Microsoft Hong Kong.
