Cybersecurity in cloud infrastructure is a shared responsibility model. What most businesses don’t realize is that the majority of the shared responsibility is on the company, not the cloud services provider.
The cloud services vendor provides a core level of security, high-availability, and physical security of its resources that constitute its cloud infrastructure services offerings. It is up to the business to leverage the solutions they provide and also integrate their tools to provide comparable security capabilities to what is sometimes easier to do with on-premise computing.
Just like the on-premise model, the business is responsible for the deployed cloud computing systems and their updates, patching, and general management to include the associated data that is also in the cloud. Whether your business uses Google, Microsoft, or Amazon or another provider’s cloud services, there are a lot of cloud security and management solutions available.
