re: Don't Let 'Spooks' Get Your Cloud Data
I agree that "it's crucial to retain ownership and control of encryption keys", but sensitive data can still be exposed.
If you outsource to a public-cloud provider, they often have multiple data storage systems located in multiple data centers, which may often be in multiple countries or regions. Consequently, the client may not know the location of their data, or the data may exist in one or more of several locations at any particular time. Additionally, a client may have little or no visibility into the controls protecting their stored data. This can make validation of data security and access controls for a specific data set particularly challenging. In a public-cloud environment, one clientGs data is typically stored with data belonging to multiple other clients. This makes a public cloud an attractive target for attackers, as the potential gain may be greater than that to be attained from attacking a number of organizations individually.
I think that the good news here is that strong data-level security can be enforced on all sensitive or potentially sensitive data before it is sent to the cloud.
I recently read an interesting report from the Aberdeen Group that revealed that GǣOver the last 12 months, tokenization users had 50% fewer security-related incidents (e.g., unauthorized access, data loss or data exposure than tokenization non-usersGǥ. The name of the study, is GǣTokenization Gets TractionGǥ.
