My organization is looking to offload some of our calculation intensive applications to the cloud. We are concerned about security. Between Amazon, Google, and Microsoft (or another vendor), which seems to have the most complete security / data security reputation. Does anyone have any experience getting cloud applications certified by IT audit?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This whole “cloud computing” thing has been completely blown out of proportion. By and large, security risks that exist outside the “cloud” are the very same inside the cloud. The big difference that management – and the lawyers – like is the fact that the risk can now be pushed onto someone else. Here are some cloud computing security considerations I wrote about recently that may be of value to you. Best of luck!
