holistic cloud security risk-based strategy, governance and rediness plan
Organizations of all sizes are increasingly reliant on cloud computing. This increased usage makes cloud computing platforms a target for cyber-attacks.
Integrating cloud into your existing enterprise security program is not just adding a few more controls or point solutions. It requires an assessment of your resources and business needs to develop a fresh approach to your culture and cloud security strategy.
Cybersecurity in cloud computing environments is a multi-faceted endeavor, involving best practices in user access and privileges, hardware and software security, virtualization, firewalls, and other processes used to protect data and infrastructure.
What is Cloud Security?
Cloud computing security or, more simply, cloud security refers to a broad set of policies, technologies, applications, and controls utilized to protect virtualized IP, data, applications, services, and the associated infrastructure of cloud computing.
A common misconception with cloud security is that cloud service providers are responsible for security. That’s simply not the case. A good rule of thumb is while cloud providers are responsible for the security of the cloud, companies must secure what’s in the cloud. To put it another way, cloud security is a shared responsibility. And as many in the security community put it, your responsibilities vary by your cloud service model, whether software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), or infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS).
Cloud security is constantly evolving, but a handful of best practices have remained constant for ensuring the security of cloud environments. Organizations that have existing cloud solutions in place or are looking to implement them should consider these tips and tools to ensure that sensitive applications and data don’t fall into the wrong hands.
