Deploying the Right Data to the Right Cloud in Regulated Industries

Cloud and cloud-centric operating models have grown to become integral components of the modern IT environment. Controlling the actual location of data in the cloud to comply with data privacy regulations has become an important task for CIOs and CISOs and should be a key evaluation criterion in choosing cloud services that handle private, confidential, and restricted data. IDC recently completed a sovereign cloud survey of 508 respondents in the public sector, financial services, and healthcare (regulated) industries globally. This white paper examines current and planned cloud usage for various data types, existence of an organizational cloud strategy based on data criticality and classification, perceptions of data vulnerability, and difficulties of protecting data against evolving and emerging security threats, as well as concerns about legitimate access by foreign authorities and changing geopolitics.
