How To Use Contracts For Regulatory Compliance Of Cloud Systems

Perficient Data & Analytics

In the previous post in this series, we discussed how to qualify cloud vendors. Once that process is complete, the second step to maintaining compliance is to document your specific regulatory requirements in a contract with the cloud vendor, usually in the form of service-level agreements (SLAs). If the system fails, how quickly will the cloud vendor commit to getting the system back online? How often does the cloud vendor take backups?
