Poll indicates support for disclosure of minimum capabilities

The New Zealand Computer Society posted the results of a poll on what they would like to see in a proposed cloud code of practice
“After wide consultation it is clear that the majority of participants support a…code of practice that is based on a simple set of disclosures,” the organisation concludes on the poll summary posted to its Website.
Participants preferred “additional modules or a tiered system” while allowing flexibility to ensure the code is updated as cloud services evolve over time, while being governed by an existing organisation focused on the code and that could respond to complaints.
Only three respondents specified a particular organisation to take up the task, mentioning the NZCS, CSA or NZICT.
NZCS says the principles outlined in the conclusions of the poll form the basis of its draft proposal. The organisation is now seeking feedback on the proposed structure and approach with development and consultation sought through February and March 2012.
