Why do organisations struggle to operate securely in the cloud?
Enterprises look to a digital cloud infrastructure to deliver scale, cost efficiencies and competitive advantage, but internal cloud security awareness and capabilities lag.
No matter where you are in your cloud adoption journey, it’s time to manage your risks appropriately.
Cloud security is a shared security responsibility model. Cloud security breaches are happening at an alarming rate, and many are the responsibility of the customer and not the cloud service provider.
Organisations must evolve their enterprise architecture and security programmes to include cloud-based infrastructure or risk becoming impacted by an increased attack surface in the cloud. This includes education and skills uplift of employees, as well as technology.
Inadequate change control or misconfiguring cloud or third-party tools can lead to potential security incidents/breaches or compromises
Effective security monitoring across cloud services, assets and tools, including managing threats, incidents and patching
Need to maintain tight identity control across identity credentials, key management for accessing the cloud assets and data
Extending traditional cyber controls and policies to the cloud environment to manage ongoing governance and risk management
Need to go beyond traditional data security controls to protect cloud workloads, considering the privacy and regulatory implications
