The leverage of the benefits the cloud and leave data center management and legacy technologies behind by the companies in every industry are keen .
As cost optimization and increased scale drive cloud adoption from the inside, the need to stay competitive to keep pace with market changes drives it from the outside. Within the enterprise, the rush to deliver cloud solutions quickly often results in underestimated migration timelines. This is especially true for organizations making their first migrations or teams without prior cloud migration experience.
In the push to meet business deadlines, security doesn’t often get the attention it deserves. This means that production applications and sensitive data are being deployed to meet key business milestones but without the best practice security principles and methodologies to govern these solutions. This rush to the cloud is one of the factors that make companies most vulnerable to security threats.
Which practices put your cloud at risk?
Most vulnerabilities can be traced back to a lack of understanding of cloud security and a shortage of the skills necessary to implement effective security measures.
In 2017, human error, not problems inherent in cloud technology, led to some of the year’s highest-profile data breaches. Improperly configured settings in services like Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) left millions of customer records and other sensitive data exposed. Researchers at RedLock found that 40% of organizations using cloud storage have accidentally exposed one or more of these services to the public.
