Security is on every business and IT decision makers’ mind – and with the average cost of a breach estimated to be $4milllion and 63 per cent of cyber security professionals anticipating a successful cyberattack on their organisation in the next year, who can blame them?
More specifically, with UK cloud adoption rate now at 88 per cent, cloud security is the big challenge to get right. As the frequency, sophistication, and diversity of global threats continue to increase, businesses need to be able to implement new security controls as quickly as they launch new cloud services. Otherwise, they risk losing the very advantages they moved to the cloud for in the first place. Perhaps not too surprisingly, however, the answer to cloud security concerns may be in the cloud as well.
