Worried about Cloud Security? Perform a Risk Assessment Yourself

Jun 17th 2014 at 6:54 AM

Cloud computing is like magic; forget about all the technical knowhow and think about it from a very childlike perspective. You place your data in an invisible container and it syncs with all your gadgets without you even lifting a finger. You can go across the world and retrieve that data from thin air.

Most people view cloud computing in that way; not exactly the same naive way, but they aren’t interesting in knowing the inner workings of cloud computing. They assume that the IT people responsible will take care of everything and that their information is safe in the cloud application.

That is not exactly the case. Like any piece of technology, storing data on the cloud comes with its set of risks. And everyone, no matter how technologically challenged they are, should know the basic security issues relating to cloud computing. One breach in the cloud can leave their data vulnerable to misuse.


Cloud Risk assessment:

Cloud services have become an essential part of the modern computing. We all want our important data available to us anytime, anywhere we want to use it. But the whole process is very complicated and learning all the intricacies is difficult. But learning about the basic risks of cloud services is vital.

Be Specific

Before you choose a cloud service to host your data, you need to know what kind of specifics you will require from the service. What are your personal or commercial requirements from the cloud service? Laying out all your needs in front of yourself will help you get the services you need and you will not have to pay for any extra functions that you don’t need.

Importance of Data

Assess the importance of the data you are placing inside the cloud. What kind of impact will you face if you lose it? This will determine the level of security or encryption your data will require. You can ask the cloud service for their security measures for your data. If you are not satisfied, you can add your own cloud security application.

After Service Protocols

Learn about the after service protocols of the cloud application you are using. What will happen to your data after your contract duration has ended.

Cloud computing is very beneficial for businesses and individuals but the risks should be noted before we decide to put all our data in to the cloud.
