This document introduces the benefits and the risks of using cloud-based services, which deliver computer processing capabilities as a service rather than as a product. Cloud service providers (CSPs) provide on-demand and scalable computing environments. Overall, cloud-based services offer your organization more flexibility than on-premises IT solutions. Cloud-based services can also provide your organization with a richer set of capabilities and free up your organization’s IT resources.
To enable the adoption of cloud computing, the Government of Canada (GC) developed an integrated risk management approach to establish cloud-based services. ITSM.50.062 outlines this approach which can be applied to all cloud based services independently of the cloud service and deployment models.
"Cloud computing has the potential to provide your organization with flexible, on-demand, scalable and self-service IT services. To benefit from cloud computing, your organization must ensure that security risks are properly managed, cloud specific security considerations are addressed, and security controls of cloud-based services are properly assessed before authorized.
You organization can use the guidance in this document to assist with its security assessment and authorization of cloud-based services. "
"Cloud computing has the potential to provide your organization with flexible, on-demand, scalable, and self-service information technology (IT) provisioning. To deliver this potential, it is imperative that we address the security and privacy dimensions of cloud computing. Cryptography is one of the main pillars enabling security and privacy in cloud computing. It plays an essential role in enabling cloud services such as authentication, secure access to cloud workloads, secure data storage, and secure data exchange.
The purpose of this document is to describe CCCS’s Cloud Service Provider (CSP) Information Technology Security (ITS) Assessment Program. The objective of the CSP ITS Assessment Program is to assist Government of Canada (GC) departments and agencies in their evaluation of CSP services being procured for use by the GC. The resulting assessments will show whether the subject CSP’s security processes and controls meet the GC public cloud security requirements for information and services up to Protected B, Medium Integrity, and Medium Availability (PB/M/M) as published by the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat
Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) offer three service models and four deployment models. The service models provide customers with the ability to use a provider’s cloud services. The deployment models offer customers different ways of using cloud services.
This document is part of a suite of documents that the Cyber Centre has developed to help secure cloud-based services. Security categorization, the selection of a security control profile, and the selection of a cloud deployment model and a cloud service model are the first three steps of the Cloud Security Risk Management approach. This approach is defined in ITSM.50.062 Cloud Security Risk Management.
This document is part of a suite of documents developed by the Cyber Centre to help secure cloud-based services and supports the cloud security risk management approach defined in ITSM.50.062 Cloud Security Risk Management.
