Jericho Forum offers cloud security tips

While cloud computing offers companies the opportunity to operate much more efficiently and with flexibility, it can open up a “Pandora’s Box of security nightmares”, the Jericho Forum said in a paper published on Thursday. Challenges include keeping data confidential and ensuring that it is not intercepted.

Many organisations, including HP and other technology leaders, have voiced concerns about about issues such as security, performance and the availability of internet-based services in the cloud.

To help companies deal with these issues, the group has developed a “cloud cube model”, meant to be a “practical blueprint, geared to showing each organisation how to architect for safe business collaboration in a way that suits its individual needs”, John Meakin, director of digital security for BP and a Jericho Forum founder, said in a statement.
