The Compliance Tie-In JM Addington

If your data is in the cloud, then your compliance efforts must focus there.

You can’t outsource your compliance. At one point storing your data on a cloud service effectively moved the compliance burden to the service provider. That is no longer the case.

  • Service providers typically held to compliance standards, but that doesn’t let you off the hook. 

You are expected to conduct vendor due diligence. And you want to because failures on their part can still come back to haunt you!

  • Documentation is key: ensure that you have objective criteria to assess vendors by, and document what the criteria are and how your vendors score against them.

The controls are more complex. A decade and a half ago data controls were much simpler – it was on or off. In the cloud, it is on/off/shared/internal/external. You don’t just need to audit logins on your local network, you need to log and audit logins across a multitude of cloud products.
