One of the key aspects that makes cloud security is the decentralization of data across multiple data centers across the globe. Data loss becomes more difficult because if one of the data centers fails, the others will be active, processing and storing the data in different geographic regions.
Now, when it comes to preventing cyber-attacks, the cloud provides an endless array of services. The principle is similar to that of traditional IT, however, providing much more functionality, tools, and ways to proactively monitor, in addition to being less costly and more efficient.
Security Elements that should be Considered when Choosing the Cloud for your Business are
- Access control
- Alert and anomaly tools
- Attack and access prevention
Just map your company’s needs and choose a cloud service that has tools that meet your company’s data storage, processing, and security demands.
It is noteworthy that the cloud is flexible and gives the autonomy and freedom to choose the level of security necessary for your business. In the IaaS model, for example, the responsibility for security is mostly with the customer. In the PaaS model, the provider guarantees infrastructure and its entire structure, but it is the customer who determines the security processes and services based on their needs. Finally, in the SaaS model, most of the infrastructure and security responsibilities rest with the provider, and the customer is only responsible for establishing the company’s standards for the provider to adapt its services.
Security During Data Migration
After deciding which cloud your company will use, the next step is to plan how your security design will look and thus implement it without major changes in your routine. Our cloud security experts at SilverTouch recommend, plan and execute in a more practical and secure way the migration of data to the cloud.
It is important to establish criteria and classifications, categorizing the information in terms of importance and confidentiality, indicating those that deserve extra attention in the process. It is also up to the responsible team to test the applications and functionalities with which the organization works to identify their compatibility with the cloud service.
You still need to have a cloud service partner that cares about the entire design and security continuity.
