Sensitive Data Stored in the Cloud

The SANS study shows the most prevalent applications running out in the cloud are business apps and data, with 75.5% reporting that use case, followed far behind by 48% reporting storage or archiving data as the second most popular application. Interestingly, whereas in 2017 84% of organizations reported using workforce applications like Dropbox out in the cloud, this year's report shows that number dropped down to 44.7%. With so many business applications out in the cloud, it should come as no surprise that some of the highest incidences of sensitive data stored in the public cloud are business intelligence, intellectual property, and customers' personally identifiable information (PII).
