While most cloud service providers (CSPs) provide basic cybersecurity tools and minimum protection, they’re not fully responsible for security, so it’s your responsibility to implement the right measures and develop a cloud security policy to ensure safe and secure cloud operations. In doing so, you’ll reduce the likelihood of exposing sensitive data to hackers and prevent security breaches from occurring.
Some general best practices for securing your data include:
- Developing a clear access policy
- Utilizing two-factor or multifactor authentication
- Deploying encryption (or tokenization when dealing with payment card details)
In addition, CIOs and IT professionals should consider investing in cloud security tools, such as:
- Cloud access security broker (CASB)
- Cloud security posture management (CSPM)
- Cloud workload protection platform (CWPP)
