As a future CIO of an organisation, you are asked to comment on the data storage issues of a multi national company (MNC). The organisation has a strong presence of a mobile workforce in three continents, with each continent employing about 100 employees that collect data on a daily basis for analytics.
The data includes financial details, stock details, manufacturing details, sales details and a number of indicators used by stock markets to determine stock values. Due to many operational issues, the MNC is seriously considering data storage issues, and commissioned you to write a thoroughly researched report on this topic.
Your report should focus on the following aspects.
1. The processes and procedural considerations the organisation would/will need to understand in data storage aspects on the cloud and how this can be mitigated?
2. What are the potential security risks in implementation of such a procedure?
