  11. Voted APPROVE with COMMENTS on ISO/DTR 22428, Records management in the cloud: Issues and concerns

    Description:

    This technical report describes all the risks and issues that may arise when managing records using cloud services. It covers issues and concerns relevant to all types of cloud, i.e., public, private, or hybrid.

    Comments and Corrections:

    We think the issues addressed here are important but the document could use some editing /clean up as there are several cases where meaning is obscured.

    A few examples:

    – (p. 18) para. just before 6.5 —  “The disadvantage is that the clients have to be in charge of payment to maintain consistency of the records stored in all IaaS’s. ”      Perhaps they mean synchronizing vs payment, not sure
    –  Figure 12 “RM agency can manageRM application which reduces feasible problem…”      — meaning unclear
    –  (p. 20) 7.1  — The risks followed by inherence of SOA in the cloud”   —  perhaps they mean “inherent to use of SOA in the cloud”
    –  7.3 “diagnose the risk due to multi-tenancy for each layer”    —  true but that needs more elaboration to be clear
    –  7.3 “cloud lock-in”   —  a point,  but should be better illustrated
    –  8.1  – list of legal risk factors —  last item in list appears to be unfinished
    –  8.1.2  –  “ambiguity that ‘data can be safe in one country but not in another’ is created”    could use rewording

    General comment on the document —  link between control/configuration of metadata of the administrative type  and authentication risk factors should be made more clear.
