Many federal agencies are hesitant to move to cloud computing because they are concerned with compromising the security of their data and environments. Although cloud security is a serious concern, there are processes and technologies that can provide sufficient levels of security assurances to help mitigate any risk.
This paper outlines in more detail the concerns government organizations have in shifting their data to the cloud and also details an option that can provide a handful of benefits, including addressing security and stability risks on an ongoing basis to mitigate threats to the cloud environment.
Read on to learn about the security details of your agreements with cloud service providers on Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), what you should know before implementing a continuous monitoring strategy, and much more.
