MIGRATING TO THE CLOUD? AVOID THESE SECURITY MISTAKES AT ALL COSTS


Working remotely has become the new norm. Moving your business to the cloud would obviously be the smartest option to take at this point to tackle the challenges that have been arising. Utilizing public Cloud is the logical move as it allows your business to extend your current operational environment.



Don't expose yourself to unnecessary risks when it comes to cloud security

Nonetheless, you should avoid making these blunders when migrating to the Cloud.



1. Not instantaneously monitoring and dealing with security data


Monitor data in real time to avoid surprise attacks

Security is something where you have to take measures to deal with it as it comes or even before it happens. As we all know, it's better to be safe than sorry. As such, collecting data is imperative in order to manage these incidents. Knowledge is power. Having these data is no exception. Comparing and analyzing your data to gain insights is a brilliant way of utilizing the collected data. This way, you’re constantly up to date on the happenings and a pre-emptive strike can be made where any security breach is suspected.


2. Failing to perceive the importance of cloud security


If you think strategizing is not required when it comes to Cloud security, think again. Planning is crucial if you wish to bulletproof your Cloud security. You have to constantly be on the lookout on what’s happening and foresee what might come next. Planning and implementation requires time- putting it off is not an option as it will just put yourself at a risk of a security breach.
