In 2008, Gartner performed an assessment on cloud computing.
This effort was to provide a practical, actionable road map to IT managers wanting to adopt the cloud paradigm safely and securely.
Their assessment identified seven risks listed below, which to a certain extent are still relevant issues in today’s environment:
- Privileged user access.
- Regulatory compliance.
- Data location.
- Data segregation.
- Investigative support.
- Long-term viability.
