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.
