What is cloud auditing?

Cloud Auditing means evaluating risks associated with Cloud Computing, and checking whether compliance requirements of a customer are met.

Cloud Auditing:
  • Helps consumers plan their business case for cloud computing and allows for change, without jeopardising the current security measures in place
  • Helps Cloud Providers understand what auditors look for before being audited
  • Provides assurance to client customers
