SECURING PROCESSES FOR OUTSOURCING INTO THE CLOUD

Sven Wenzel, Christian Wessel, Thorsten Humberg, Jan Jürjens

Abstract

Cloud computing is yet one of the leading developments and depicts the biggest progress in web technologies. It offers a convenient way for using shared and easy accessible resources, in both a web-based and demand-oriented sense. However, cloud computing brings concept-based risks, e.g. the risk of private data becoming publicly available. Outsourcing of services into a cloud computing environment arises numerous compliance and security-problems for the potential customer. Legal as well as business requirements have to be met after migration to a cloud environment. Compliance to laws, industry-specific regulations and other rules have to be kept. In this paper we present the research project SecureClouds and our ongoing research towards security and compliance analysis of processes which are to be outsourced into the cloud. We further show a first prototype of an analytic tool-environment that allows us to examine whether outsourcing of a business process is possible while keeping all security and compliance requirements.
