Book Review: Cloud Security Rules

A while back, Kai Roer graciously sent me an electronic copy of the book Cloud Security Rules that he co-authored with an all-start cast including luminaries Wendy Nather and our very own New School’s Alex Hutton. All in all, it’s a solid read covering the gamut of topics from Risk and Compliance to technology versus the human factor and finishes nicely with a section on business models. A few chapters about more about security without being a particular focus on the cloud(tm), but that’s not particularly a problem.

My only real complaint about the book is that with so many authors, things don’t always flow as smoothly as they could when moving from chapter to chapter. This is however made up for by the general high quality of the work. In particular, un addition to the authors mentioned above, you’ll also want to make sure to read the sections by Lori MacVittie, Brian Honan and Kevin Riggins.

This book is targeted at decision makers, managers and othesr who need to understand cloud from business view, so if that’s you, I encourage you to read this book. Definitely worth the price.
