2020 will go down in history as the year that digital transformation fully took hold across all industries. The transition to cloud applications was expedited by the COVID 19 pandemic. With a CAGR of 16.3%, the global market for cloud computing is anticipated to reach $947.3 billion by 2026.
These statistics are the corroboration that organizations have benefited from the reliable cloud infrastructure at the core of the digital revolution as they transitioned to remote setup.
In simple terms, cloud computing has been incredibly helpful in lowering operating expenses, boosting speed and scalability, and simplifying simplicity of use. But it also had its own share of threats, security flaws, and complexity.
- Create conveniently accessible backups on multiple servers or practise a 3-2-1 backup strategy to prevent a data compromise.
- Enable multi-factor authentication so that organizations can verify a user’s identity and provide an extra degree of security.
- Plan periodic assessments of cloud configurations and access privileges, as well as security drills, to prevent authorization gaps.
- To find security holes that require rapid correction, conduct security drills.
