Security remains crucial as organizations increasingly turn to the cloud for cost-effective and scalable solutions. When considering migration to cloud platforms, data breaches and unauthorized access to sensitive information are top apprehensions for managers.
However, these challenges can be effectively managed by implementing robust security measures and following best practices.
NIST 800-171: A comprehensive framework for protecting controlled unclassified information (CUI) in non-federal systems, NIST 800-171 offers guidance on safeguarding sensitive data. Adhering to this framework helps organizations demonstrate their commitment to cloud security.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): MFA is a security system requiring multiple credentials for user authentication. By implementing MFA, organizations can significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive information.
CIS Critical Security Controls: The Center for Internet Security (CIS) provides a prioritized set of actions to improve cybersecurity posture. Organizations can achieve a more secure cloud environment by incorporating CIS controls.
Migrating to the cloud need not be a daunting process. By implementing these robust security measures and remaining vigilant, organizations can reap the many benefits of cloud computing while protecting sensitive data.
