Selecting a Cloud service provider (CSP) isn’t just about picking the better deal that fits your company’s budget. The cloud provider framework is where your data will be stored and, more often than not, data plays a huge part of the day-to-day running of a business. Therefore, it is essential to go over other key points that make sure enough efforts are done to provide you with available, confidential and unchanged data. It is essential that your CSP voluntarily discloses this information on how your data will be stored whenever you need it.
