Corporate Governance, Risk Appetite and Cloud Security Risk: A Little Known Paradox. How Do We Square the Circle?

Keywords: Corporate governance; corporate stewardship; risk appetite; cloud security risk.

Abstract:
In today’s corporate world, the notion of corporate governance has taken a more important role in the management of large corporates. There is a growing consensus that large corporates ought to take more of a stewardship approach to running a company in a clear attempt to move away from the agency theory approach, with all its attendant problems and issues. A fundamental component of corporate governance concerns the adequate recognition of risk faced by the organisation and dealing with it appropriately. Traditional corporate IT risk is well understood, as are the mitigation strategies needed to address this important area. Large corporates also understand risk theory well, and how finding the right balance between risk and profitability is key to ensuring profitability can be maximised while ensuring long term sustainability and resilience are also achieved. We assert that the cloud computing paradigm, while economically attractive to corporates, provides such a step change from traditional IT paradigms, that new risks have evolved, which are not well understood, leading to the possibility of unintended exposure to these sometimes considerable risks. We propose a different approach to the quantification of these risks, which we believe will provide a more robust approach to understanding the potential exposure they face when using cloud.
