Reap the benefits of the public cloud, with thoroughly controlled risks
Moving existing information systems into cloud infrastructures offers many benefits in system accessibility and scalability. On the other hand, cloud deployments also introduce a new layer of cloud specific risks. Before moving your systems into a public cloud, you should carefully evaluate the risk you’re taking on, what the possible ramifications of each type of risk are, and protect your new systems accordingly.
Spend optimally for cloud security controls
There’s virtually no top limit on what you can invest into cloud security. This is why it’s crucial that you evaluate which protections you require, which measures best address your particular requirements, and implement a cost-effective risk management strategy.
If needed, outsource cloud operations to NIL, and focus on your core competencies
Managing cloud operations and keeping up to date with the risk management measures which protect you from daily changing threats requires a dedicated security operation. If your business isn’t that of system integration and cyber risk management, and odds are that it isn’t, you may benefit from outsourcing your cloud operations and focusing on your core business.
