IT Governance Helps Companies Find Security in the Cloud

Ely, England, 5 September 2012 –
A new book from IT Governance Publishing, the specialist publishing arm of IT Governance, is helping companies protect business information in the Cloud.
Securing Cloud Services: A pragmatic approach to security architecture in the Cloud explains how to establish an appropriate set of controls to manage the risks.
The book’s author, Lee Newcombe, is an experienced enterprise architect currently working at Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services.
Newcombe says: ‘There are many benefits to Cloud Computing, which include reducing, or even removing, the need to invest in the hardware, software and staff needed to support equivalent on-premise services. However, the flexibility the Cloud brings in IT service deployment, alongside an opaqueness in the delivery of those services, introduces security risks that need to be understood and addressed.’
Alan Calder, Chief Executive of IT Governance, adds: ‘Plenty of material simply states the risks of adopting the Cloud model. Securing Cloud Services, however, not only identifies the risks, but also reveals how to use architectural techniques to derive appropriate ways of managing those risks.’
Securing Cloud Services is aimed at all business decision makers who work with Cloud services, from senior IT stakeholders to enterprise architects and information security professionals.
Securing Cloud Services can be ordered online now, in multiple formats, for £29.95 (usually £39.95) atwww.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3896 (UK) or for $39.95 at www.itgovernanceusa.com/product/2571.aspx (US).
