When you think of security in the Cloud, consider it the same way you would consider your home security – there are threats outside your organisation and threats that come from within. External threats are generally malicious or opportunistic, while internal threats are generally caused by carelessness.
In the Cloud, data breaches are your biggest threat. These breaches can be created by external hackers or through the leaking of information from an internal source, such as an employee who accidentally leaves his laptop on a plane.
Breaches are inevitable, so every business needs a strategy to protect themselves. This strategy should consider:
- Data storage and security
- Application and software storage and security
- Protection of financial information
- Security protocols for ‘bring your own’ devices and applications (BYOD and BYOA)
- Security tools, and
- Security policies
Netlink Group has security professionals that can help guide you develop and manage your own security policies.
