Guide to cloud security management and best practices

Cloud strategies have been implemented to varied degrees by businesses of all sizes.

While the cloud is advantageous in many ways, it also presents hazards that businesses should fully examine before placing data there.

Organizations rely on cloud providers far too often to provide a secure environment.

Unfortunately, this strategy has a number of flaws, including the fact that cloud providers aren't always aware of the risk associated with a customer's systems and data. They have no visibility into other components in the customer's ecosystem, including their security requirements. Failure to take responsibility for cloud security is a severe flaw that can result in data loss, system breaches, and destructive attacks.

Best practices for cloud security

After deciding to use the cloud for data, apps, platforms, and infrastructure, the next step is to develop a cloud security strategy.

Critical factors should be addressed in the policy, such as how employees can connect with the cloud, the sorts of data that can be delivered and stored there, access controls, and so on.

While there are a variety of ways to construct a cloud security policy, including adapting an existing infosec or using a software package, we have built a cloud security policy template that guides organizations through the process.

The type of cloud service a business requires determines how you approach cloud security: SaaS, IaaS, or PaaS. We’ll delve more into these three in our next blog post.
