Cloud Security is the set of tools that protect data stored in a cloud environment. Cloud Security can include everything from identity and access management (IAM) to firewall protections to help ensure that only authorized users have access to sensitive information. It can also include monitoring and detection of threats in real time to prevent unauthorized activity from happening, and it can also include tools that can prevent data breaches from occurring when sensitive information is shared or moved between systems.

Most major CSPs are highly conscious of the impact a single breach could have on their business, and they go to great lengths to protect their customers’ data. They do this by building security into their infrastructure, and they also provide security education to their employees, as well as procedures and technology that prevent the CSP’s own workers from viewing customer data.

But despite the extra layers of defense put in place, cyberattacks still happen. And, according to Verizon’s latest report on data breaches, most of those breaches are due to a misunderstanding of the role that each party plays in protecting their own information. Most of the time, those breaches are due to the customer misconfiguring the cloud security tools provided by their CSP.

The best way to avoid these misconfigurations is through continuous scanning and identifying vulnerabilities and resolving them promptly. This will prevent attackers from exploiting them. Additionally, implementing end-to-end encryption will ensure that even if the data is stolen or exfiltrated, it will be unreadable without the key.
