Cloud Computing Standards: Where's the Beef?
May/June 2011 (vol. 15 no. 3)
pp. 74-78
James Blake, Mimecast

Some new standards might help with the operational complexities of cloud management, but the biggest need is for evaluative standards that let customers assess the security and reliability of cloud vendors.
