Risk assessment tool for public cloud services — Excel version
Record your answers from the risk assessment tool — use the Excel spreadsheet or your own document for recording them.
Ways to record your answers
Government organisations can record their answers to the questions in the tool in either:
- the Excel version of the risk assessment tool for public cloud services
- your own document for recording them.
In both cases, government organisations must complete the questions relevant to their situation — and any other questions that are unique to their business and technical contexts.

Your answers to these questions will help you to complete your risk assessment of using a public cloud service.
