CSO: What do you consider the most important risk management issues related to the cloud?
Rivel: From a broad perspective it is important for organizations to recognize that the ownership of the risk still resides within, and it is essential to quickly identify and assess the different engagement [models] for cloud services so that the organization can create a risk management framework that addresses these security and risk issues.
