Cybersecurity in the cloud
Cloud computing is unarguably convenient. The cloud gives you the ability to work from literally anywhere, provided you have an internet connection. However, that convenience is hardly worth it if it means compromising cybersecurity.
But there’s good news here. Enterprise-level cloud services are largely very secure. If you’re partnering with well-established providers in good standing, you’re most likely safe. That said, we still recommend that you don’t make any assumptions.
You know the kind of data your business will keep in the cloud. You know the government regulations (if any) you’re responsible for upholding. And you know the kind of damage a security breach will create.
Before you embrace any cloud service, do your homework. Double- and triple-check to make sure potential cloud providers have the necessary security on the back end to keep your data safe.
