Cloud Solutions as Part of Your Security Posture

Posted on: May 21st, 2014 | Category: Cloud Computing

Understanding where your organization is using cloud solutions needs to be part of your security posture. It’s important to understand where cloud services are being used from within your organization. This applies to not only today, but also where they could potentially be used tomorrow as well.

It’s also  important to know that the partners you chose are following best-of-breed practices. For my money I expect that there’s a higher degree of attention to security than we might implement on our own. My advice is maintain trust, but verify.
