Consistant and Repeatable
Companies need to have people, process and technology in place to manage Security on a daily basis. Smart companies have consistent & repeatable methods in place to identify anomalies which could be some level of risk. If a company does not have proper technology and process in place to establish a baseline, they may not know that there was an intrusion until it's too late.

 

Great article, let's keep getting the word out about proper security and risk,

The good news
I agree that "Cyber criminals could seek to exploit weak or ignored corporate security policies established to protect cloud services. Now home to an increasing amount of business-confidential information."

The McAfee report also stated that "If we keep our stuff in the cloud and access it from a phone, tablet, kiosk, automobile, or watch (all of which run different operating systems and different applications), we have substantially broadened the attack surface. Because these access devices will inevitably be less secure, cloud vendors will be compelled to significantly improve security on the connections and on the data itself. We think successful cloud providers will respond to this challenge during the next five years, enabled by technologies from leading security vendors."

Ponemon Institute recently presented the report "The State of Data Security Intelligence." The report asked "What keeps IT practitioners up at night?" Not knowing where sensitive or confidential data is located is their biggest worry, according to 64 percent of respondents. This concern has increased significantly from last year's.  

The good news is that cloud can offer a way to secure sensitive enterprise data and files. Gartner released the report "Simplify Operations and Compliance in the Cloud by Protecting Sensitive Data" in June 2015 that highlighted key challenges as "cloud increases the risks of noncompliance through unapproved access and data breach." The report recommended CIOs and CISOs to address data residency and compliance issues by "applying encryption or tokenization," and to also "understand when data appears in clear text, where keys are made available and stored, and who has access to the keys." A recent Gartner report concluded that "Cloud Data Protection Gateways" provides a "High Benefit Rating" and "offer a way to secure sensitive enterprise data and files stores of data and use cases.
