Cloud services Critical Criteria:

Consider Cloud services engagements and proactively manage Cloud services risks.

– We keep record of data and store them in cloud services; for example Google Suite. There are data protection tools provided and security rules can be set. But who has the responsibility for securing them – us or Google?

– An extra consideration when using cloud services concerns the handling of encryption keys where are the keys stored and how are they made available to application code that needs to decrypt the data for processing?

– The slower data transfer rate between a compute cluster and a storage array has been adversely impacting multiple cloud services. which Service Management process helps to mitigate this impact?

– Who will be responsible for making the decisions to include or exclude requested changes once Cloud-Based Engineering Information Management is underway?
