  4. 4. A Working Definition of Cloud ComputingCloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.This cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics, three service models, and four deployment models.
  5. 5. Cloud Computing - The Coming Storm “Cloud” is the aggregation of Servers, computers, storage and Networks hosting the program and data”.• Accessed via Internet• User Centric• Task Centric• Powerful• Programmable• Economical• Disruptive
  6. 6. Agenda• Cloud Computing.• Indian SMB (Small & Medium Business).• Cloud a Boon for SMB’s.• Cloud solutions for the SMB’s.• A Road Map for SMB Cloud Adoption• IS Cloud Computing Secure ?

  24. 24. Are you Secure Today ? Do You Make Backups ? Are Your Backups held in the same location as your servers ?Are your servers disaster proof ? If there is an earthquake, is your data and applications securely mirrored in another location (another continent) ?Do you have 24/7 security in your data center ?If your answer is NO to any of the question above please review your security posture ! If the answer is YES How much does it cost to manage this security level ?  Is it comparable to what the Cloud offers ?
  25. 25. Cloud Computing Threats Non Repudiation
  26. 26. CSA Guidance DocumentsCSA has guidance documentation highlights all the computer security bases as they apply to cloud offerings.CSAs Cloud Controls Matrix [XLS] is geared toward cloud service providers and auditors. It lists controls and maps them to popular compliance requirements: COBIT, HIPAA, PCI DSS, and so on.CSAs Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire [XLS] lists well over 100 questions that map back to the controls listed in the Cloud Controls Matrix. These documents are meant to be used together.The CSA documentation does not address very specific issues as a information security auditor you are expected to know what to do.
