How to Secure Your Data in the Cloud
Securing your data in the cloud can be difficult. Many organizations are afraid of giving up control over their sensitive information even though cloud-based storage offers significant benefits over traditional on-premise hosting. Let’s quickly look at some of the most common problems that organizations face today when it comes down to securely storing data.
Your Data is Everywhere
Because of the nature of today’s business, all of us are dependent on digital technology and carry at least two or three devices: work computers, personal computers, mobile phones, and tablets. Let’s consider an imaginary company with 25 employees that allows people to work from home and allows the use of personal devices. All the sudden you are faced with a problem on how to secure a lot of points of entry that create potential vulnerabilities. A company with 25 employees can easily have up to 100 devices that need to be managed and protected.
After you find a way to protect your employee devices or establish a new company-wide policy that restricts “work from home” and “BYOD”, you will have to find a way to secure your office from the outside threats. Ransomware, DDoS, phishing and other types of cyber attacks are on the rise. Do you have a proven way to keep a cyber guard? Is it even possible to maintain a sustainable level of cybersecurity when the biggest banks with multimillion-dollar IT budgets go down?
The answer is not to search for perfect security but to consider potential technology risks and establish sound mitigation plans. One of the best ways to mitigate cyber risks is to give your employees technology that’s built with cybersecurity at its core. Additionally, don’t be afraid to partner with expert companies that solely focus on providing businesses with secure and compliant digital solutions.
