Upcoming article: Cloud compliance checklist

My next feature for Computer Weekly will be on the compliance issues around cloud computing projects.

It’s an update on a piece I wrote last year: https://www.computerweekly.com/news/252441643/Compliance-in-the-cloud-Avoiding-the-cloud-compliance-trap

The piece will summarise the laws and regulations that must be considered by UK organisations when it comes to storing data in the cloud, and what they need to do to ensure compliance.

It will then focus in on the tasks and processes needed to ensure cloud compliance. These include;

  • What are the key tasks and processes involved in a cloud compliance audit? 
  • What regular processes are required to ensure cloud compliance for your data?
  • What questions do you need to ask a cloud provider to ensure cloud compliance?

As ever, happy to feature case studies from organisations in the public or private sector that have undertaken this type of work.
