Abstract
Cloud computing benefits organizations in many ways. With characteristics such as resource pooling, broad network access, on-demand self-service, and rapid elasticity, an organization's overall IT management can be significantly reduced (in terms of labor, software, and hardware) and its work processes made more efficient. However, is cloud computing suitable for the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF)? How can the SAF migrate its traditional system to cloud-based services in a safe and secure manner? These were questions answered in this thesis. In this thesis, cloud computing was shown to increase cost-effectiveness in the healthcare and business sectors. In addition, from the military perspective, the benefits of cloud computing were analyzed from a study of the U.S. Department of Defense. Then, using cloud computing–related documents from the United States, a list of recommended policy statements were developed for the SAF to consider for guidance as it migrates to greater adoption of cloud-based computing in support of its operations. These policy statements encompass the various aspects of information security deemed most important to the SAF's adoption of a cloud-based computing environment.
