MTCS SS584:2015 - Multi-Tier Cloud Computing Security Management System

The Multi-Tier Cloud Security (MTCS) Singapore standard has been launched in Singapore to provide businesses with greater clarity on the levels of security offered by the different Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). The standard aimed to spur the adoption of cloud computing across the varying industries. The MTCS SS584:2015 is the world’s first cloud security standard that covers multiple tiers.

The standard has three levels of security:

        • Tier 1 – Designed for non-business critical data and system, with baseline security controls implemented to address potentially low impact security risks and threats
        •  Tier 2 – Designed to address the needs of most organization running business critical data and systems through a set of more stringent security controls to address potentially moderate security risks and threats
        • Tier 3 – Designed for regulated organizations with specific requirements and more stringent security requirements due to higher impact of risks

Benefits of MTCS:

        • Reduce the risks associated with cloud computing
        • Provide assurance to cloud service subscribers as they are able to make informed, risk-based decisions relating to adoption of cloud services
