I would like to ask IT risk experts, like you, questions about Cloud risk and how you assess Cloud risk. I plan to do this with three short surveys using SurveyMonkey. The first survey is here. The second survey will build upon your expert answers in the first survey, and the third survey upon your expert answers in the second survey.
Aside from finishing my dissertation, I plan to use your answers to make a risk assessment guide which will be freely available to all. Your time and help with these surveys could help many SMEs as they try to secure their Cloud deployments.
I know that most of you have to keep specific information confidential. I will not ask your name or your employer’s name. I will not record the IP address you use to respond to my surveys. I will safeguard your answers, and no personally identifiable information will be collected or published. You are free to not answer any question that may divulge sensitive or confidential information. Each survey will start with an informed consent page that details your rights and how I will respect those rights.
