re: The New Bank Robbers: Emerging Cloud Threats
Robert, You make a great point about how important the issues of security and risk management are when choosing a cloud provider. The problem for many organizations, however is finding CSPs that are willing to "open up the kimono" about their security policies and share details on how they protect customer data from attacks and breaches. Do you have suggestions or best practices for evaluating CSPs. Also what are some terms you would recommend that enterprises include in SLAs to keep the Willie Suttons at bay?
