While the IT industry may be a diverse field covering many disciplines of technology it is ‘The Cloud’ that every business and technology company are hoping to leverage. Companies needing to take advantage of this emerging cloud technology must concern themselves with more than just the cloud technology itself.The current concern as it relates to ‘The Cloud’ is how to manage risk for industries such as healthcare, financial services, retail,and utilities These regulated industries provide avenues for the cloud to be leveraged but the cloud must meet the compliance and security standards set by the regulatory bodies of the respective industries.
