Security & Compliance in the Cloud

Almost every business decision requires executives and managers to balance risk and reward, and efficiency in that process is essential to an enterprise’s success. Too often though, IT risk (business risk related to the use of IT) is overlooked. While other business risks such as market, credit and operational risks have long been incorporated into the decision-making processes, IT risk has usually been relegated to technical specialists outside the boardroom, despite falling under the same risk category as other business risks: failure to achieve strategic objectives.

With the emergence of the Cloud, IT risk has suffered yet another radical transformation. The past couple of years have also brought along new vulnerabilities, exploits and attack methods, as well as new data privacy requirements such as the GDPR. While all of these things require significant changes to any existing processes and tools, they mostly require a different approach when catering to people's IT security awareness, especially when moving to the Cloud.
