The cloud is a dynamic convenience in a global, portable society where remote access is in demand. Whilst the cloud infrastructure and security perimeter differs from a traditional static and private network, the variables in accessing data and applications are far greater thus posing new threat vectors.
25% of organizations have cryptojacking activity within their environments.
Cloud security is about achieving the benefits of outsourced computing and storage while maintaining the security of your data and the integrity of your networks
Outsourcing data storage and processing to a third party such as AWS or Azure can have transformative effects on a business, but migrating to the cloud fundamentally increases the attack surface of your IT network, potentially making your organisation less secure.
A comprehensive cloud security programme mitigates this risk by addressing systems, procedures and organisational culture.
When you migrate data and applications to a cloud infrastructure, your IT and security teams are faced with a new paradigm, one in which the attack surface radically increases, security becomes a “shared responsibility” with the cloud provider, and the security toolset changes.
Virtualisation and robust security systems within third-party data centres ensures that the security of the hardware and associated software is generally not an issue. Where most organisations encounter problems is in the migration of data, configuration of services and user error.
Failures in cloud security can have catastrophic consequences including data theft, data loss (including ransomware), insider attacks, account hijacking, and DDoS attacks.
Cloud security is about configuring your cloud systems, interfaces and security monitoring services, securely migrating apps and data away from legacy systems, and ensuring regulatory compliance.
This minimises vulnerabilities while also acting as a mitigating factor in legal disputes and regulatory action in the event of a future security incident.
