A survey of IT professionals, released yesterday, announced that despite security concerns and the expected growth in cloud computing, only 27% of respondents said their organizations have procedures for approving cloud applications that use sensitive or confidential information. The study was coordinated by Symantec Corp. through the Ponemon Institute, a privacy and information management research firm.

The survey, which polled a range of industries including insurance, found that only 20% of the organizations surveyed reported that their information security teams are regularly involved in the decision-making process and approximately a quarter said they never participated at all. However, 69% of the respondents indicated they would prefer to see the information security or corporate IT teams lead the cloud decision-making process.
