A guide to creating secure cloud services


The use of cloud services in place of traditional IT solutions has been increasingly encouraged by the UK government, as seen in initiatives such as Cloud First and G-Cloud, as a means of lowering costs and boosting platform agility.

However, concerns around privacy, sovereignty and data integrity can make organisations less confident in embracing cloud-based services.

If your public sector organisation is looking for guidance on how to use cloud services without compromising the confidentiality, integrity or availability of the information which makes up its digital and shared services, then a new white paper from cloud specialists, Skyscape Cloud Services, offers a comprehensive and informative guide.

Find out about the new Government Security Classification policy and how data assets previously classified at Business Impact Level 3, which are likely to now be classified as OFFICIAL, can now be deployed on the same cloud platforms that previously were only suitable for assets classified as IL2.

Not all cloud services are created equal, so how public sector organisations can make informed decisions when selecting cloud services is explained, even for the most precious of data assets.
