Comparative Analysis of Cloud Computing Security Frameworks for Financial Sector

Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 236)


Cloud computing has become a preferred operating model for financial organizations due to the flexibility it offers in business operations which made the platform readily available for consumption with advanced capabilities in security, technology, and cost-effective. This paper presents a comprehensive analysis of the salient features of four cloud security frameworks viz, Cloud security reference model, Novel open security framework, Temenos enterprise framework architecture (TEFA), and Sherwood applied business security architecture (SABSA) in regards to their suitability for a financial organization. The comparative analysis is primarily based on the deployment models, structure, service delivery model, security policy, and security standards and guidelines.
