Security for your cloud services
Cloud computing has arrived in the companies, also here in Germany.
And the services from the data center promise a lot:
More and better functionality, less cost, and better service quality from virtually anywhere. Clear value drivers, then. In addition to countless benefits, privacy and security concerns exist when data is collected, processed and stored in the cloud. Regardless of whether it is data of individuals, institutions or companies.
Before you consider switching your processes to cloud-based services, you should carefully identify the potential risks and evaluate them in context. By no means every company is ready to move data and processes completely into the cloud.
A comprehensive risk assessment incorporates current research as well as key international safety standards and best practices.
Essentially, three major areas are affected:
- Enterprise Security: This includes the governance capability of a company to manage the potential risks within the cloud, policies and processes that provide business continuity, and a disaster recovery plan for data and process recovery, managing the data throughout its lifecycle (create, store, edit, share, archive, destroy, etc.) and finally, the ability of a company to port data to the cloud or even from one provider to another.
- Technologies: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), they all make services fast and easy to use become. At a fraction of the previous cost and much less complex. At the same time, it should be solutions that allow comprehensive protection of sensitive data and guarantee that they remain confidential. This applies to the level of physical security, the security infrastructure as such, security at the application level, and the entire area of identity and access management.
- Compliance: There are also regulatory and audit requirements as well as the legal implications within the cloud.
