Topic: Cloud Security: Best Practices for Securing Cloud Environments
Businesses are rapidly adopting cloud infrastructures for information storage and business operations. Cloud environments enable seamless data exchange, boost productivity, are reliable, and reduce operational and overhead costs. Cloud infrastructures are self-contained networks that may be either physical or virtual.
Despite this multitude of benefits, migrating to cloud platforms also increases the likelihood of various security threats, such as data loss, unsecured APIs, and data breaches. Enhancing security in cloud environments is thus a top concern for many organizations. Since traditional security measures cannot always be applied to cloud technologies, there has been a massive shift in how companies are strategizing to secure their cloud environments—and although cloud misconfigurations are widespread, there remains a huge skills gap in the cloud security domain.
This webinar discusses the challenges associated with adopting cloud infrastructures and sheds light on the best measures organizations can take to fortify their cloud security and prevent data breaches and losses associated with the cloud.
- Roadmap for selecting a suitable cloud solution
- The benefits and limitations of shared security models
