comprehensiveness, details, and effectiveness
for the organization under assessment. The audit
reports typically become part of the organization’s
educational process in order to educate and
inform the cloud operations, maintenance,
design and implementation staff to understand the
mistakes, flaws and shortfalls and ensure such will
not repeat themselves in the future. In addition,
the report becomes a reference point for upcoming
projects and a benchmark of compliance matrix for
minimizing risks and non-compliances in the future.
The cloud undergoing IDCA audit can expect
to receive grade certification and classification per
every high-level component of its infrastructure,
