The Cloud helps organisations to efficiently store and manage data.
The Cloud also potentially opens up information systems to a new set of weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Private, public and hybrid cloud architectures all present unique challenges in maintaining compliance with data protection regulations and protecting sensitive and critical data.
Misconfigurations, inappropriate user access levels and missing security tools all lead to vulnerabilities that could potentially give attackers access to networks.
Findings from a cloud security assessment can help protect business operations, personnel data and customer information that may be held in cloud environments.
