How to Retain the Right Kinds of Control in the Cloud

Security and risk management leaders need not worry that moving to the cloud requires relinquishing total control. It does require embracing a new mindset, with a renewed focus on identity, data and workloads, while becoming comfortable with giving up ownership of the underlying platform. This playbook, written by Gartner Analyst Steve Riley, enables such leaders to find the right balance between the two.

Key Findings:
  • Security teams and developers have less affinity with cloud-based control concepts, leading to insufficiently controlled environments if left unattended
  • As regulatory concerns continue to increase, organizations should expect to increase monitoring in order to demonstrate governance and compliance
  • Organizations must orient control objectives toward who/what/why/how rather than where to help facilitate conversations with auditors
