Your five best practices are best encapsulated by a Cloud App Security Broker. It will help you identify shadow IT as well as authorized apps and define policies for your ecosystem. You can do this based on app or an even better practice by action (Save, Upload, Share, etc)

IT cannot outsource accountability
I agree with your tips. Compromise management, that's a good point to start.

Looking at "Code spaces" issue we can understand something about role-based access control and business continuity.

First a company with a cloud provider based infrastructure should have several accounts to manage segregation of duties and protect data (backup administrators, VMs administrators, ...). With such segregation, a possible attack to cloud instance administrator panel can be mitigated.

And what about the backup 3-2-1 rule? Three backup copies, two different media whit one offsite.

Company IT has to look at several IT security aspects because IT has always the accountability for everything. It's not possible to outsource it.
