About this talk

2020 was the year of cloud computing due to the COVID19 pandemic, which required more businesses to operate remotely, and the staff to Work From Home. Though it is the obligation of the cloud service provider to take responsibility for their infrastructure and ensure security and safety at all ends, sometimes it doesn’t quite happen. There have been several large-scale incidents this year, in some cases, stemming from a surge in usage. If there exists a gap between the requirements of the organization versus the capability of the cloud service provider, proper and formal steps must be put in place to successfully mitigate this risk to an acceptable level. The best method to identify these gaps and address them with stakeholders is via an audit of the cloud service provider. This presentation will briefly explain the controls which need to be audited, to provide the requisite assurance to the client organization and their stakeholders. Ignorance is not bliss when migrating to the cloud.
