I can't begin to emphasize how bad this is as an approach.

comment Transparency Report Standards
+1 for Privacy Officer and lawyer. Reports answer questions. You include in the report only the answers to the questions you are required to answer. This needs careful guidance.

Do you know about WPA and how it is better than WEP?

comment What are the security impacts of securing with WEP?
I'm confused by your question. Are you asking why a business would want to secure at all, or what the risks are of securing with WEP, specifically?

comment What are the implications of an overly-restrictive password policy?
@mcgyver5 Agreed, and the password field on the database is hard-coded at 8 chars (so, old).

comment What are the implications of an overly-restrictive password policy?
It means they aren't using a standard library for passwords but rolling their own. The restriction of $ and # confirms it. The repeating letters restriction is a 'feature' that the programmer thought up, so he does a very basic look-ahead search at each character to see if the next character is the same. The problem then is "what ELSE is poorly programmed in this security sub-system?"

comment What to focus on in Cloud security?
The point of a scholarly research is to sift through the mess to focus on what is relevant. This is your first day, be patient. Keep reading. Your focus on IaaS/PaaS is STILL too broad. Keep reading and you will find an avenue to explore that will help you focus.

It looks like you are caught between the 'theory' and 'practice' forums. I can give general guidance here but for specific implementation, you'll need to consult the appropriate forum (Serverfault)
