Use your cloud plan

Check the cloud plan and affected policies in your organisation — senior managers, business unit leaders and people in other roles all have different responsibilities for using it.

Check for your organisation’s cloud plan

How to follow your organisation’s cloud plan depends on if you’re:

  • part of the senior management team
  • a leader of a business unit
  • in another role in your organisation.

Senior management team

Besides writing the cloud plan, you’re responsible for helping the people in your organisation to use it.

Leaders of business units

Check within your organisation for its cloud plan. Written and approved by your senior management team, the cloud plan ideally emphasises the approaches, instead of specific solutions, you should take when using public cloud services.

Use the cloud plan to bring your organisation’s other policies into line with it.
