One of the largest recurring themes that CSACH members are confronted with is “how do I develop a cloud strategy”. In reality this is largely dependent not upon the maturity of cloud technologies, rather upon your organization’s maturity in the area of Data Governance.
Data Governance – and not cloud strategy defines where and under what conditions your organizations data can be manipulated, stored and worked from. This varies from country to country and especially in Switzerland – with strong data protection laws – can often directly impact what kind of cloud strategy is even possible.
So in order to address these themes we have embarked upon a journey. With this series we will endeavor to clarify “What is Data Governance” and how does this relate to security in the cloud.
