The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) has launched a Code of Practice for cloud service providers. The Code of Practice aims to promote standards of transparency, capability and accountability for all aspects of cloud computing service provision. Cloud providers can sign up to the Code through annual self certification underpinned by spot checks. Areas for audit include disclosure of information, contractual terms, software licences and information security to name a few. This quality assurance scheme will be useful for colleges and universities when comparing cloud providers and the standards of service they offer. For more information or how to sign up to the Code, see here: http://www.cloudindustryforum.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=43&Itemid=35
