We need more secure cloud storage
Why you need secure cloud storage
Data loss is one of the most damaging events that can happen to your business. Information security breaches can damage your reputation and lead to expensive legal battles, and the loss of business-critical data can cripple your business continuity. That’s a lot of responsibility to entrust to a 3rd party.
- Your provider’s vulnerabilities are yours too
Remotely-hosted storage is only as protected as the host server. If your provider doesn’t invest and maintain their own security your data is just as vulnerable as theirs is. This is especially true if you’re relying on a completely public cloud service, where your resources could be stored on the same network as potentially thousands of other customers.
- Data breaches bring massive losses
Data breaches cost UK businesses over £2.5m per breach on average. That’s a staggering level of financial loss. When you consider that 88% of UK businesses have suffered a breach or cyberattack in the last 12 months it’s not a risk you can afford to ignore.
- Failure to keep data secure damages reputation
Customers and consumers don’t consider investing in security as an optional extra from businesses they engage and give personal information to. Failure to invest in a secure hosted storage solution associates your brand and business with cut corners and untrustworthy practice. If you’re relying on a cloud-hosted storage solution you must be certain that your provider has the security of your data at the top of their priority list.
WHY YOUR CURRENT CLOUD STORAGE ISN’T SECURE
There are many reasons your current cloud storage solution isn’t secure or as secure as it should be. If you’ve recently experienced a data breach, DDoS attack, unauthorised access to your servers, or detected viruses or malware in your systems, there could be a number of reasons your current cloud storage is to blame.
One of the most common causes of cloud data breaches is poorly configured or misconfigured cloud services. Many businesses have to rely on the security controls set up by their cloud service provider. Unless there are clear communications between your CSP and users, misconfiguration can easily occur, leading to insecure elements and data being created in your cloud infrastructure.
Unauthorised access, malware, and DDoS attacks
Cybersecurity threats to your hosted cloud storage are more than just unauthorized access from hackers or malicious external actors. If your cloud storage isn’t secure your business systems are at risk of malware injections, DDoS attacks, and more. Many of these threats further weaken security, creating a snowball effect that leaves both your cloud-hosted and on-site systems extremely vulnerable.
No due diligence
A lack of due diligence when planning, designing, and deploying your cloud-based infrastructure can leave your business incredibly vulnerable. Many technical security weaknesses in cloud infrastructures can be traced back to businesses failing to lay out clear objectives and goals, correctly assess their resources and needs, or take the time necessary to create appropriate cloud policies.
