Microsoft Cloud Security
5 Musts You Need to Know
5 Musts You Need to Know
Cloud security is the new cyber security for businesses moving their computing and data to the cloud. A necessary business strategy for the 21st century, the Cloud offers huge benefits including automatic software updates, efficiency, cost savings, scalability, better collaboration, increased storage capacity, mobile access, and disaster recovery, just to name a few.
However, with all the benefits that moving to the Cloud offers, if IT managers can’t see and touch where their data is stored and protected, it can cause them stress. But as cloud computing becomes the norm, businesses need to be confident that cloud security follows suit.
As an IT manager in charge of cybersecurity, you might be wondering what your responsibilities are versus the cloud vendor. When it comes to Microsoft Cloud Security, here are 5 MUSTS you need to know.
While cloud vendors do their part when it comes to cyber security, it’s your business that ultimately must step up. With more processes being digitized, more third-party companies are involved, making things even more complicated. While cloud computing makes life easier, and cloud vendors have their own cyber security pros in place, businesses must remain vigilant, making cybersecurity a top priority.
You can rest assured that cloud vendors take cybersecurity extremely seriously and have invested heavily in the security of their products and part of that investment is helping their clients’ secure their data as well. Microsoft Cloud Security has built in applications that can help you monitor and detect threats—and not just for Microsoft—but across multi-cloud platforms.
If you are a small or medium-sized business, the risk of a cyberattack is REAL. Forty-three percent of cyberattacks happen to small businesses—primarily because only a small percentage of them were prepared to defend themselves, making them especially vulnerable. The cloud can offer security options you might not otherwise get from your on-site infrastructure because of the strong security measures cloud vendors put in place.
If you do business with organizations in the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA), there are even more cloud security protocols you have to adhere to. And if you use multiple cloud solutions across several vendors, it’s even more complicated. In May of 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was put in place to ensure that businesses’ data practices comply. Work closely with your vendors to make sure you understand and comply with governance and regulatory oversights.
As more companies move to IoT devices, relying on cloud computing to integrate servers, analyze information, increase processing power and storage capacity, that means more security vulnerabilities. Businesses can start to address the cloud-related IoT security threats by ensuring they have a robust cybersecurity solution.
