How to Manage Your Cloud Data Leaks
Is your Cloud raining data leaks?
Data leaks often occur in the cloud or from other third-parties. This occurs because InfoSec teams cannot control all aspects of security outside their network perimeter.
Whether you are at a small company or large enterprise, it is essential to detect if your data is leaking in the cloud, before it becomes a major data breach. Did you know you can get instant alerts when your data is leaking on third-party sites? You bet. But, what’s the rush?
Hackers are continuously searching for vulnerabilities to exploit. These cyber criminals pursue systems that are easiest to hack. If your cloud-based applications and databases have no vulnerabilities, they are less likely to be hacked. However, if there are known open ports, exposed servers or files within your cloud-based system, your system is at higher probability to be hacked.
Innovation and unintended consequences
Fifteen to twenty years ago the term “cloud computing” and early pioneering companies like Salesforce were changing the way businesses operate. Today, terms like digital transformation, cloud computing, and 4th Industrialization are integral to enterprise business strategies. The unintended consequence was the cybersecurity risk to sensitive, critical, confidential business data. Long gone are the days of securing sensitive data through control of physical devices and fencing location of where employees could access that data. Businesses now average 470 third parties with whom they share critical data — far beyond the enterprise perimeter. As of 2019, around 48 percent of all corporate data is stored in the cloud. The unintended consequence of these business innovations is the need, the requirement for equally innovative cybersecurity solutions to protect your data outside of your enterprise perimeter.
Protecting data outside the enterprise perimeter
Enterprises success often rests on employees and third-party access to sensitive data via web-enabled devices. The downside of migrating to cloud and digital transformation is that risk goes up astronomically.
What are you doing to protect data in your cloud? Is your cloud raining data leaks via third-party sites? If you are not sure, you can find out fast using our free dashboard to assess for data leaks. Many businesses have migrated to the cloud or gone through digital transformation and needed to improve cybersecurity after the fact. Smart businesses assess where their data is leaking in the cloud so they can remediate leaks before they become costly data breaches.
