Name an online cloud storage service provider and you’ll have no problem at all finding reports for a breach. Recently, we’ve seen frequent incidents reported in the press involving companies leaking data through misconfigurations involving the cloud, as well as headlines reporting on user inexperience leading to weak security in cloud deployments. But user error, complexity and misconfiguration surrounding cloud storage resources are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to common cloud security issues – the reality is that cloud security is a multi-faceted issue involving not only technology, but also how companies look to approach cloud transition. To truly understand and implement effective cloud security we first must understand the nature of the threats and the value of what’s stored, the significance of the cloud migration and transition processes, and the most effective way of protecting our assets.
