Research environments

In today's society all business, even parts that are critical to society, is dependent on well-functioning IT-infrastructure and IT-services. It has been found that the use of cloud services, as a way to provide infrastructures and services, has increased. However, today there is little knowledge about how public agencies and municipalities use cloud services. The main objective of the project is to investigate public agencies’ and municipalities’ exposure to cloud services, risks associated with this use, which information security requirements are set and which challenges are encountered during procurement.
