        This report is the result of information collected in the Cloud Security Readiness Tool (CSRT). The CSRT is a brief survey that seeks information about the maturity level of an organization’s current on-premises IT infrastructure. Organizations can use the CSRT to better understand their systems, processes, policies, and practices. They can also improve their current IT state, learn about relevant industry regulations, and receive guidance on how to evaluate different cloud options. This report analyzes data that was collected in the six-month period between October 2012 and March 2013. The data consists of answers provided by people who used the CSRT. Approximately 5700 anonymized responses to the CSRT’s 27 questions were received from around the world.
