An Effective Cloud Strategy is the Key to Cloud Security
As organizations rush to take advantage of all the benefits of cloud computing, establishing a mature cloud strategy is essential to protecting data, applications, infrastructure and other enterprise assets in the cloud.
Many cloud security failures are the fault of customers rather than cloud providers. Whether it's due to inadequate identity and access management protocols, a lack formal security training for developers, or the IT team's inability to keep up with the growing number of cloud resources that employees are using, these security failures will have a devastating impact on corporate reputation and profitability.
Clearly, an effective cloud strategy must deal with cloud security risks first and foremost. But incorporating security into cloud strategy and tactical operations requires significant expertise. That's where cloud security consulting services Optiv can help.
