They might already be more secure. A cloud vendor likely has more resources to pour into security than any financial institutions' IT department.

re: Changing The Cloud Security Conversation
Many cloud vendors are pouring a lot of resources into security. It's generally seen as the biggest barrier to adoption of their services. With all of that focus on security, the cloud vendors will probably get to the point where their services are the most secure on the market at some point. But we're probably not there yet.

That's a good point about reading the contract and making sure to find a cloud provider that fits the needs of a financial institution by Mr Neely. Making sure the right security is in place at all times is just as important as initially securing.

re: Changing The Cloud Security Conversation
It's interesting that these experts are suggesting there may actually be MORE security in the cloud than in alternative/traditional environments. I'm sure that's somewhat oversimplified, but it does illustrate that execs need to put aside assumptions and preconceptions about these emerging models and objectively assess what strategies truly will support business and operational requirements.

re: Changing The Cloud Security Conversation
Cloud services provide too much potential to completely ignore. Like Howie mentions, it's good that cloud vendors can obtain these various industry certificates, so banks can know how legitimate of a cloud vendor they are dealing with.
