In recent years, the concept of cloud computing has seen a significant growth. The spectrum of available services covers most, if not all, aspects needed in existing business processes, allowing companies to outsource large parts of their IT infrastructure to cloud service providers. While this prospect might offer considerable economic advantages, it is hindered by concerns regarding information security as well as compliance issues. Relevant regulations are imposed by several sources, like legal regulations or standards for information security, amounting to an extend that makes it difficult to identify those aspects relevant for a given company. In order to support the identification of relevant regulations, we developed an approach to represent regulations in the form of ontologies, which can then be used to examine a given system for compliance requirements. Additional tool support is offered to check system models for certain properties that have been found relevant.
