This article introduces a model for cloud governance with a specific focus on its semantic aspects. It considers three dominant paradigms - the business-IT alignment paradigm, the governance paradigm, and the cloud paradigm. The model can be enhanced with specific tools to serve as a holistic framework for addressing governance of both traditional and cloud-based IT environments. The proposed consideration of semantic aspects within the model can enable a more feasible application of the model in complex architectural settings - both from the point of view of architecture assessment and architecture management.© 2013 Elsevier B.V.

Cloud computing is actually one of the most popular themes of information systems research. Considering the nature of the processed information especially health care organizations need to assess and treat specific risks according to cloud computing in their information security management system. Therefore, in this paper we propose a framework that includes the most important security processes regarding cloud computing in the health care sector. Starting with a framework of general information security management processes derived from standards of the ISO 27000 family the most important information security processes for health care organizations using cloud computing will be identified considering the main risks regarding cloud computing and the type of information processed. The identified processes will help a health care organization using cloud computing to focus on the most important ISMS processes and establish and operate them at an appropriate level of maturity considering limited resources. © 2014 Knut Haufe et al.
