NIST Seeks Comments On Cloud Computing Security Document

Explore:  Cloud Computing NIST

On June 11, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published a draft security document that provides a comprehensive security model to supplement other NIST efforts to develop a standard vocabulary and implementation framework for the integration of cloud-based applications across the government. NIST will accept comments on the draft document through July 12, 2013. Although NIST’s resources are developed for use by federal agencies, they can influence other policy decisions and may serve as a resource for private firms seeking to understand the benefits and risks of cloud technology.
