This web-based research study, crafted with assistance from leading experts in cloud computing, security and privacy, covers:

If you're involved in your organization's cloud computing initiative, please take the survey. 

  • Top Security Concerns: Are organizations more anxious about where their data are stored or whether a malicious insider might be a threat to it?
  • Success Factors: On a scale with cost savings and availability of services, how does security now rank among elements critical to a successful cloud computing implementation?
  • Protective Measures: What are some of the practices organizations are employing, from instituting more stringent contracts to enforcing third-party audits and participating in mock security exercises with cloud service providers?

The survey also covers cloud computing trends by industry and region, how senior leaders make their cloud decisions and top cloud-service investments projected for the coming year.
