Cloud compliance is the principle that cloud-delivered systems must be compliant with the standards their customers require. Cloud compliance ensures that cloud computing services meet compliance requirements. This interesting topic came to us from CIO in their article, “Compliance in the cloud.”

Some organizations think they have to make a decision between broad data access and governance, particularly when it comes to regulations and policies around data privacy. However, data governance can help users more easily access the right data when they need it.

There are benefits of organizations moving some or all their IT workloads to the cloud. There are also several challenges to successful cloud adoption, and one of the most important of them is compliance.

Compliance with government, regulatory and internal policies is critical to any data-driven organization. Cloud adoption amplifies your compliance challenges, but it doesn’t need to be an insurmountable obstacle. Familiarity with the main cloud compliance issues and their potential solutions provides a good foundation.
