Security is a current concern and will continue to be a significant concern in the future. The good news is that there is optimism that security, privacy, data ownership, and assurance issues are being and will continue to be addressed. International data privacy, data ownership and custodian responsibilities, and information security — commonly discussed cloud computing concerns — all show increased levels of future confidence. While international data privacy only moved up one position in terms of the ranking, the mean score moved 1.28 points, a significant shift in confidence.

Findings from a joint Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and ISACA survey show that government regulations, exit strategies and international data privacy dominate the top 10 areas where confidence in the cloud is lowest.

A collaborative project by ISACA and CSA, the “Cloud Market Maturity” study provides business and IT leaders with insight into the maturity of cloud computing and will help identify any changes in the market.  The report provides detailed insight on the adoption of cloud services among all levels within today’s global enterprises and businesses, including the C-suite.

The study reveals that cloud users in 50 countries were least confident about the following issues (ranked from least confident to most confident).
