Building A Secure Cloud Infrastructure For Strong Data Protection
July 22, 2021
Infrastructure has been in the headlines recently as the White House is aggressively making plans to modernize road, broadband, water and manufacturing needs. The recent bipartisan Senate agreement for a $1 trillion infrastructure deal is the latest example of this trend. With infrastructure top of mind, it reminded me of how companies must address new challenges to help them adjust to working in a cloud environment.
Growing pains have emerged, with many organizations moving to the cloud for business continuity since the start of the pandemic. Sometimes expediency takes precedence, and flipping the switch from an office setting into a virtual workplace pushes cloud infrastructure hygiene to the “we’ll get to it later” category. That has certainly been the case over the last 18 months. However, cybercriminals view such oversights as opportunities and will stop at nothing to steal vulnerable data.
