The Cloud Octagon Model is a new framework for cloud adoption (mostly SaaS adoption). The model was designed in cooperation between ABN-Amro and the Cloud Security Alliance and assists organizations to identify, represent, and assess risks in the context of their cloud implementation across multiple factors by introducing a logical approach to holistically dealing with security aspects involved in moving to the cloud.
