Demystifying Cloud Compliance: A Comprehensive Guide by Ankercloud

October 11, 2023
00

Did you know that approximately 60% of global corporate data resides within cloud storage systems? This percentage is projected to increase steadily as more businesses embrace cloud technology. What is driving this substantial surge in cloud computing adoption?

Cloud solutions offer remarkable speed, agility, and flexibility, enabling organizations to leverage emerging cloud technologies for delivering cutting-edge products and services. However, it's important to note that migrating your workload to the cloud comes with inherent security risks.

Cloud infrastructures introduce a larger attack surface, and companies rely heavily on cloud providers to safeguard their sensitive data and applications. The complexity of the cloud, with its numerous access points, presents opportunities for malicious actors to exploit vulnerabilities. In simpler terms, data stored in the cloud is more susceptible to cyberattacks.

To bolster security measures and mitigate these risks, adherence to cloud compliance frameworks is imperative. These frameworks encompass various regulatory requirements and standards, encompassing both cloud provider compliance requirements and industry-specific standards.

This article will equip you with comprehensive insights into cloudSecurity and compliance, addressing the associated challenges and providing valuable Solutions. You will also discover how Ankercloud can assist you in implementing data security policies and procedures that align with compliance requirements.

Cloud security and compliance challenges

The distributed nature of cloud technology, while offering remarkable advantages, brings forth a unique set of security challenges:

1. Data Breaches: Cloud breaches can lead to significant data exposure, whether caused by misconfigured settings or insider threats. Unauthorized access to sensitive data remains a top concern.

2. Insecure APIs: Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) play a crucial role in enabling interactions among different cloud components. Inadequately secured APIs can become vulnerable entry points for potential attackers.

3. Shared Responsibility: Public cloud providers follow a shared responsibility model, where they are responsible for securing the infrastructure, while customers bear the responsibility of securing their applications and data.

4. Compliance and Governance: Organizations must ensure that their cloud infrastructure complies with industry regulations and internal security policies to maintain a strong governance framework.
