The challenges are many but many of the same security mantras apply.
It's notable that though there are many seemingly overwhelming challenges in cybersecurity, there are always specific layers of security you can add to address them. Segmentation has long been a critical layer of security. Separate networks that never touch one another can't pass data or access rights from one to the next. It's important to add M/L AI to that to keep up with crackers, who also use it, and for the reasons stated in the article.

IoT and the cloud are sources of concern. IoT is a target and a tool of crackers who is it in DDoS attacks. The security vulnerabilities inherent in IoT will grow exponentially with the skyrocketing device count. You are indeed responsible for securing your data and the paths it takes into and within the cloud. Know your cloud vendor, what you need from them, and that they can and will provide the several security measures and assurances you require. Use audits, insurance, and other tools to manage the risks of the cloud.
