ISACA, a nonprofit association of 95,000 members focused on information assurance and security, has released a new 190-page book with guidance to help organizations assess readiness and controls for leveraging elements of cloud computing. The guide, “IT Control Objectives for Cloud Computing,” outlines questions organizations should ask, governance and assurance considerations to be managed, and the risks and drivers to consider.
