In March of this year, at RSA 2010, the Cloud Security Alliance, officially unveiled the Top Threats to Cloud Computing. This was a collaborative effort that drew upon the expertise of some of the finest minds in the security industry to compile a list of threats facing both enterprises deploying cloud based solutions and the vendors providing the infrastructure. The original list took several months to compile with input from cloud vendors, consumers and researchers. In the end, the Top Threats to Cloud Computing v1.0 guidance was released, but it was always meant to be a starting point, not the end of the journey.
We're now working toward updating the Top Threats and plan to release the v2.0 list at the RSA Europe 2010 conference in October, but we need your help. You may have read v1.0 and thought "why did/didn't they include this particular threat", well now it's your chance to ensure that your voice heard. Whereas v1.0 was compiled by a closed group in the interest of 'putting a stake in the ground', we want v2.0 and future revisions to be a true open, collaborative effort with submissions from all those concerned.
Here's our plan:
