SECURITY CHALLENGE

Cloud Security

Achieving Security with Agility

As more organizations move their business processes to the cloud, IT departments have an increasing responsibility to ensure these processes run smoothly and safely for both employees and customers. Since cloud technology is easily accessible, new vulnerabilities could appear just as soon as you launch a new system. As the owner of the cloud infrastructure, you are still responsible for the security by ensuring that your systems are patched and properly configured—a significant challenge in today's world.

The Risks of Storing Data in the Cloud

Data security is a huge concern for companies that store data in the cloud. There are many risks associated with storing data in the cloud, but we've outlined some of the most common ones below:

Data Breaches & Data Leakage

Cloud storage providers do not guarantee that your data will be 100% safe from cyberattacks. Cloud storage providers can be breached by hackers or malware, which could result in your files being stolen or leaked. This is why you should make sure you're using a reputable cloud storage provider with strong security measures in place.

Privacy & Compliance

Large amounts of data in combination with multiple users and services represent a significant challenge concerning privacy and fulfilling compliance requirements. Companies must know and articulate a division of responsibilities regarding regulatory compliance in the cloud and ensure that their cloud service providers and applications are certified compliant to handle sensitive data.

Unsecure APIs

With cloud services comes APIs or application programming interfaces. There are often security gaps in APIs that provide unauthorized access to your data. A misconfiguration can open the door to security breaches. Cybercriminals can also use the documentation from the cloud service provider to pinpoint and exploit vulnerabilities and steal sensitive data.
