Lately, Microsoft has announced a series of updates for various cloud products and services, as part of its continuous commitment to deliver a better, more secure experience to its customers.
However, when it comes to security in the cloud, things often get complicated, and Microsoft has often underlined that.
In fact, the company has offered a variety of details on cloud security through the Trustworthy Computing’s Cloud Fundamentals video series that we’ve been covering for the last half a year or so.
The latest installment of the series is also focused on discussing security in the cloud, but it presents a different aspect of the deal, namely security standards.
Companies around the world are interested in the matter, since the quality of services they receive is determined by these standards.
“Security standards for cloud computing are of high interest to many organizations around the world eager to adopt cloud services that are implemented and operated using a standards based approach,” Tim Rains, director, Trustworthy Computing, Microsoft, explains in a blog post.
“Cloud providers that choose to leverage existing or emerging security standards help make it easier for potential customers to evaluate and compare the security of cloud services.”
In the new video in the Cloud Fundamentals series – embedded below – you can see Laura Posey, a senior security strategist at Microsoft, talking about the latest updates brought to these standards.
She has been working closely with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) in an attempt to advance security standards across the cloud services industry, and she offers first-hand details on the matter.
“The work that we are doing in the CSA to contribute to best practices continues to influence the ecosystem – it’s a great place and a great collaboration,” Laura said, among others.
