While cloud computing is flexible and streamlines data operations, some security concerns have plagued this technology.)
Since the existence of the Internet, safeguarding data has always been challenging as well as an important task.
The introduction of cloud computing has made cybersecurity a serious concern than ever. Traditional firewalls and other security devices might not be sufficient to protect the data stored over the cloud.
Here we have rounded up some security concerns related to cloud computing.
Lack of Transparency:
A cloud service requires you to hand over the data to an outside third party, giving birth to a transparency issue. It all begins with knowing what your provider’s data setup is like—whether they deal in a private cloud, they have a public cloud system or how many barriers there are between the data accommodation of several customers.
Lack of User Access Control:
You may have granted access to authorized employees for the data stored over the cloud. However, you may never know which one of them can turn into an insider threat. For example, an employee who is about to resign can store the data in his cloud and then sell it to your competitor.
Loss of Data:
Cloud computing has some ceding of control from the client to the vendor. While this lets the clients focus on their core line of business, there is always the risk that the crucial data is sin somebody else’s hands. The compromised security of a cloud service can let a hacker get into your files.
Vulnerability to Malware infections:
The high volume of data is stored over the cloud using an Internet connection. This methodology is vulnerable to Distributed Denial of Service attacks, where cybercriminals can direct unprecedented volumes of traffic to a web-based application, thereby crashing the servers.
So these are some concerns cloud computing technology needs to address. After all, it is considered as the future of data processing. What do you think? Please let us know by commenting below.
