What is Cloud Auditing?

Cloud Auditing means risk evaluation associated with Cloud Computing, and checking whether compliance requirements of a customer are met.

Cloud Auditing:
  • Helps cloud consumers to build a solid business case for cloud computing and navigate the changing landscape without jeopardizing their risk postures
  • Helps Cloud Providers understand what auditors look for before being audited
  • Provides assurance to client customers

A cloud auditor identifies specific vulnerabilities and threats and recommends controls to be implemented on various levels.
