“For vendor risk, if you are exposed highly to one cloud provider, the risk you may face is reduced negotiation power when you have to renew the contract,” Adam said. “Then there is availability risk. We have seen quite a few times now that there has been a broad scope of impact and outages globally. So, when you put all eggs in one basket, you have availability risk that you need to manage.”

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Adam discussed:

  • How to ensure a clear exit strategy;
  • Various aspects of cloud concentration risk;
  • The top considerations when selecting a cloud services provider.
