Topic: Risk Management Framework (RMF) for Cloud Ecosystem.

In a Cloud Ecosystem, the complex relationships among cloud Actors, the Actors’ individual missions, business processes, and their supporting information systems require an integrated,
ecosystemwide risk management framework that addresses all cloud Actors’ needs. As with any information system, for a cloudbased information system, cloud Actors are responsible for evaluating their acceptable risk, which depends on the threshold set by their risk tolerance to the cloud Ecosystemwide residual risk.

The riskbased approach of managing information systems is a holistic activity that needs to be fully integrated into every aspect of the organization, from planning to system
development life cycle processes, to security controls allocation and continuous monitoring.
Therefore, a Risk Management Framework (RMF) provides a disciplined and structured
process that integrates information security and risk management activities into the system development life cycle.
