An increasing shift towards agile enterprises results into an increasing importance of IT outsourcing, amongst which Cloud computing services are used to obtain scalability and increased availability. As the use of Cloud services incurs related risks, proper risk management and Cloud governance need to be performed to mitigate these associated technical risks, operational risks, organizational risks and compliance risks. To achieve effective Cloud governance, the required structures need to be in place, governance and management processes need to be performed and relational mechanisms need to be embedded.
