Let’s Talk About Cloud Security – Part 2

The recent spate of worldwide cyber-attacks has done little to deter businesses from moving forward with their digital transformation plans.  In fact, new research shows cloud adoption in the enterprise isn’t slowing despite cyber-security and data protection concerns.

While businesses continue to move forward with their plans cloud security has been thrust into the spotlight once again. In this two-part post, we’ll look at six steps to better cloud security

Identify suspicious user activity

Catching suspicious user behaviour early is the key to successfully defending yourself against security breaches.  For example, sometimes developers unintentionally copy files from the production server. You need to be informed when such activity occurs and take corrective actions.

Strategix cloud hosting solutions provides several attractive benefits for your company by enabling you to consume computer resources as a utility – just like electricity – rather than having to build and maintain IT infrastructures on-premise.  Extending into the cloud should expand your options without adding complexity allowing you to meet changing business needs with greater flexibility.

Use data encryption

If you want to protect your data from unwanted access, try encrypting it. There are cloud protection apps available that will generate passwords and secret key sequences then apply them to your files before upload. This means the content of your files will remain off-limits to anyone without a password. You can also choose a Cloud provider that offers encryption services.

Protect against the insider threat

No one likes to think about the possibility of an internal threat because we would all like to trust our employees however it is something you cannot ignore. Should an incident occur, it’s important that you have a trail of logins, processes, network activity and file changes to answer the who, what, where, when and why.
