More and more customers we talk to about cloud adoption have two seemingly opposing priorities in mind:
- Broadening their cloud use cases to more business critical applications in production
- Addressing the ever increasing IT compliance requirements that are demanded of them

With the right people, processes and technology in place, IT leaders can leverage cloud service providers to help achieve ISO 27001 compliance – even more easily than they could achieve it with on-premise infrastructure. IT needs to ensure their cloud service provider has the security capabilities in place – as well as the compliance reporting capabilities and, even more importantly, the willingness to help them maintain ISO compliance for their cloud workloads.
