Clouds are secure: Are you using them securely?
BT presents a complimentary copy of Gartner's report, which highlights how, through 2022, at least 95% of cloud security failures will be the customer's fault
Gartner’s report ‘Clouds Are Secure: Are You Using Them Securely?’ highlights that “many organisations are paying an opportunity cost by allowing unwarranted fears about security to inhibit their use of public cloud services.”
Organisations that haven't taken a strategic and carefully governed approach when using cloud computing can easily run the risk of it being less secure than traditional computing. This can result in compliance incidents and leaked data.
The report states that, "The recent history of public clouds has demonstrated that brand-name, multitenant public cloud services are highly resistant to attack, providing a more secure starting point than most traditional in-house implementations."
“CIOs need to ensure their security teams are not holding back cloud initiatives with unsubstantiated cloud security worries. Instead, they should encourage their teams to apply imagination and energy to develop new approaches to securely and reliably leverage the benefits of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS.”
