    Edited by Erik Johnson 15 days ago

    The CSA would like to invite the Financial Services Industry (FSI) research working group and the CSA's FSI Circle Community to participate in the 2022  State of Financial Services in the Cloud Survey.
    The goal of this survey is to analyze the level of adoption of cloud solutions and requirements from financial institutions' perspectives compared to a prior survey conducted in 2019. Additionally, we are asking further questions on current challenges facing the financial service industry and engagement with their cloud service providers.

    In administering the survey, the Cloud Security Alliance wants to take the temperature of cloud computing in the financial sector to identify opportunities to create guidance on protecting financial data and related assets within secure cloud services. These takeaways will inform the Financial Services working group and serve as actionable items to address the concerns and opportunities associated with cloud computing and financial services.
    Length: 31 questions, 10 minutes
    Deadline: Nov 30
