Cloud Computing Security Methods — Upgrade To New Security Techniques

Cloud Computing Security Methods

Cloud computing security methods and accountability can be increased by imparting quality education about its necessity and implementation. Indeed, the legislation has a vital role to play, but the issuing of fines for non-compliance with security regulations has had little effect. Compliance is taken very seriously now. EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) fines up to €20m or 4% of the annual turnover, and this should act as a deterrent for the companies to sincerely take their security issues. Organizations cannot come up with the excuse of increased expenditure or the lack of return on investment.

Cloud Data Security Linked to Data Maximization

Enterprises have full control over the data that they collect and retain. Herein lies the problem of data maximization. Enterprises tend to keep even unnecessary data over more extended periods, leading to the aggravation of security leaks. Organizations hoard data thinking that they might be useful later if at all things go wrong. But the basic principle is that you don’t lose what you don’t have. So, the sensible thing for all the enterprises would be to retain data that is essential and let go of the rest. Because when any data breach occurs, the enterprises need to know the processes of dealing with it and putting things in place.

The plus thing about educating the folks on cybersecurity is that it pays off in the long run. The employees apply the knowledge gained by the training across multiple projects. The most sensible and fundamental thing would be to educate people about CASB solutions related to cybersecurity issues in their job roles. It helps fix defects and is cheaper here than to fix it after a breach has taken place. Education is needed in the data collection and retention aspect. CASB solutions should be effectively implemented across the enterprise, and the employees should be trained for their practical use.
