Cloud computing can save companies money without putting business information at risk. That is the message in Above the Clouds: Managing Risk in the World of Cloud Computing, a new book by cybersecurity expert Kevin T. McDonald, senior critical infrastructure protection (CIP) and cybersecurity analyst for ICF International, a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients.

Through cloud computing, a company's information technology (IT) functions are moved to an external, shared service provider and accessed over the internet. Data is no longer stored in-house, and the company no longer owns software applications. Above the Clouds explains the potential benefits of adopting this approach.
