Know your responsibilities
These days, data and applications can be found everywhere, from private cloud to IaaS, PaaS and SaaS environments. There is not doubt about the business value of the cloud. However, the question is how you can best secure your data in the cloud.
Your cloud provider is responsible for the security of the cloud, while you are responsible for the security of the data in the cloud. Should you take no measures, than your data can be unintentionally accessible to external parties.
The cloud evolution requires a new model of automated cybersecurity and it should be a vital part of your IT security.
