When you migrate to cloud services, you aren’t just changing where your business activity and data live. You’re moving them into an environment that’s not entirely under your control. That means making sure your cloud service providers have adequate cybersecurity — but it also means revisiting your own cybersecurity controls so you don’t create new vulnerabilities that didn’t exist when your data was on-premise. Gartner and other experts recommend adopting an “onion” security strategy, which wraps concentric layers of protection around each individual workload at the data, network, computer, and user level.
You’re moving to cloud services to be more flexible and efficient. Why not use it as an opportunity to improve your defenses against cybercrime, too? Developing an onion cybersecurity strategy doesn’t have to make you cry. Contact Xantrion for help.
