Strategies to Help You Secure the Data You Have in the Cloud

Strategies to Help You Secure the Data You Have in the Cloud

Most businesses leverage the cloud in at least some capacity, whether cloud-based apps or cloud-based infrastructure. In any case, using the cloud comes with inherent security questions that must be addressed during the planning, implementation, and launch phases of any solution. Let’s go over some of the ways you might protect data and applications stored in the cloud.

Make Encryption a Priority

Most cloud providers are pretty great about their security measures, but you should consider encrypting your cloud-based applications and data through the use of a virtual private network as well for when data is moving from one system to another. This ensures that your data is safe, even in the event that it is stolen by hackers, as the effort it takes to crack military-grade encryption is often not worth the hacker’s time.

Keep Access Control in Mind

Hackers will use every trick in the book to steal from you, including cracking your accounts and using your permissions against you. Access control can help to limit access to more sensitive data on a per-user or per-role basis. You can further reinforce access control with an effective multi-factor authentication solution that uses biometrics or confirmation emails/texts/phone calls to better secure your accounts. Basically, the idea here is to minimize the damage they can potentially do, even if they manage to steal credentials in some way.

Perform Regular Cloud Audits

Even the simple act of keeping tabs on your access logs and solutions can go a long way toward preventing security breaches. Many cloud providers have these tools available to them, and your IT department can utilize these and other tools to prevent unwanted logins or react to potential problems in a pinch.
