Cloud SWAT teams

Cloud computing poses unique security challenges for organizations, and multiple industry surveys have shown that security and privacy are among the key concerns of executives considering the cloud.
To address the challenges of securing the cloud, the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit organization made up of cloud vendors, user organizations and other key stakeholders, is developing the concept of cloud-specific "security incident-response teams" (CloudSIRT) . Security executives and industry analysts say the initiative is a good move and should help bolster security in the cloud.
For many, the threat of security breaches is the biggest reason why they're reluctant to embrace cloud computing . IT and security executives still aren't convinced that service providers can adequately safeguard their data, particularly when it comes to using public cloud services for business transactions.
