The are many fears and myths surrounding the cloud and it can be confusing, but it is time for stronger cloud services security.
Cloud services has seen a large increase over the years as business leaders are starting to better understand the capabilities and limitations of cloud services including the technology behind it. Even thou cloud services can be as secure as the legacy IT infrastructure system it is replacing does not mean that organizations need to forget about their responsibilities related to data protection and privacy.
Cloud services security still needs to be a top priority for every organization as more mission-critical systems and highly sensitive data continue to go the cloud using software, infrastructure, and other platforms.
International Data Corporation recently reported that the value of the global cloud computing services infrastructure market expanded by 23 per cent to a total of $7.6 billion within a quarter.
The public cloud services model is gaining a lot of ground and grew at a rate of 25.9 per cent compared to the 18.8 per cent rise seen in the private cloud services model. In second place, we have the hybrid IT cloud services model with it wide options for organizations.
Cloud services computing adoption is hot and growing. Data security continues to see healthy double-digit growth in cloud IT deployments in the market with an increasing preference for public cloud infrastructure. Many organizations are modernizing their IT infrastructures as they have a larger number of viable cloud options including many as-a-Service offerings and traditional infrastructure.
Poor business and IT practices can quickly translate to a data breach for your organization especially when newer technologies such as the cloud are in use and introduced to your employees. Naked Security reported that nearly half of all companies are not encrypting their employee human resource records and medical files therefore putting employees at risk.
