Cloud Risk Management

Moderator: Mary Beth Borgwing 

Why Cloud Risk Management?

Risk Transfer Solutions and the race to provide them will be the next instantiation of the commerce of Cloud. Cloud has moved from buzz to business critical with Gartner anticipating that spending on Cloud applications will reach $150 billion by 2013.  With Enterprise poised for substantial investment, it is critical for customers, providers and investors to have an informed view of risk, policy, governance, and above all, a strategy for remediation.  Until now, the financial risk of data loss or security intrusion within the Cloud and other cyber environments has been mitigated through the reliance on Service Level Agreements or a contractual indemnity. The first method is fiscally ineffective and the second requires legal remedy.  

The recent relevant regulatory intervention in the United States where the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2011 required that all regulated firms should disclose the risk of cyber incidents. Expectations in the market are that this will trigger many firms buying cyber-insurance in order to communicate to the market information that they are properly managing these risks. The new rules also require those regulated by the SEC to evaluate and take into account all available relevant information including prior cyber security incidents and severity and frequency of those incidents. Disclosures under these rules require that the regulated firms include a description of relevant insurance coverage.
