Cloud services bring a momentous opportunity to accelerate business through their ability to quickly scale, allow us to be agile with our resources, and provide new opportunities for collaboration. As we all take advantage of the cloud, there’s one thing we can’t forget— our data. When using software-as-a-service (SaaS) we are responsible for the security of our data, and need to ensure it is accessed appropriately. When using infrastructure-asa-service (IaaS) or platform-as-a-service (PaaS), we are additionally responsible for the security of our workloads, and need to ensure the underlying application and infrastructure components are not misconfigured.
