What is cloud security?
Compliance, architecture and infrastructure
The cloud is the internet. And unlike physical locations, it is a lot more difficult to properly secure your part of it. Physical lines can be plugged into firewalls and then you are secure. But in the cloud, small mistakes can have big consequences. A configuration error can lead to being directly connected to the internet, and then it is a small effort for hackers to breach security.
Before you start setting up your security, it is important to start thinking as soon as possible about what you will be doing in the cloud, accounting for compliance regulations, and how to ensure that your cloud security architecture and infrastructure align with your existing overall infrastructure and strategy.
The easiest way to ensure this, is simply by applying the same strategy throughout the entire organization. The Zero Trust strategy is exceptionally suited to this.
