Hybrid Cloud Security Concerns

You can witness your friends or your relatives who also have to control a business like you, take advantage of cloud but you do not. However, in terms of compliance, you are still the one who take responsibility for your data although it is not controlled by a cloud vendor.

What is more, even though you may be confident and feel peaceful when you have your own private network, you may find it is dispensable for you to move all your data into a technology being able to manage a vast amount of data, cloud. And things will get complicated since then. You need to stick to your mind that even though the cloud provider can take over your mission of controlling your data and you can save much of your time, it is the data security that can be influenced much.

Because more entrepreneurs tend to adopt hybrid cloud mechanism, there are a lot of problems about cloud security that you must take into consideration.

  1. Data compliance

Moving your data into cloud environment means that you need to learn all the laws about compliance for your data as well as the company you are working for. Regardless of which reasons you have to work with your data from managing your patient health information to controlling the sales of your business, you should understand clearly all the information of your work. You have to ask your cloud vendor to explain to you which compliance standards that they satisfy for their customers.

  1. Policy management

Policies you have with your private network are not the same with ones you have with cloud services. The first and foremost purpose of a hybrid cloud is to be capable of setting a security policy constantly over your whole network. This policy does contains such infrastructure policy as firewall rules, user authentication as well as many others. In fact, this step is so challenging as you have to work with more than one cloud service vendors. In case you work with a multi-cloud environment, the problem will get easier and easier. Thus, nowadays a lot of IT security experts choose to find multi cloud management platforms so that they can limit the difficulty for themselves.

  1. Data leaks

When it comes to saving a hybrid cloud, the most concerned problem for data security providers is data visibility. It is important to decide the location that the data should be located because it is risky if you do not pay attention to having a suitable visibility for your data. Therefore, when you transfer your data, especially sensitive one into the environment of a cloud service vendor, you should monitor properly so as to control your data store locations.

  1. Data encryption

The last issue to take into consideration is data encryption. It is obvious that an ideal method for you to save your data at any time is to encrypt in when your workload is not too busy. As you are working in a multi-tenant case in a cloud service vendor environment, encrypting will be really indispensable. Another thing to stick to your mind is that you have to protect your data since it is delivered between cloud demarcation points and also when it í processed as well as manipulated by a cloud app. Obviously, carrying out this task can help protect your data within all the whole life of data. It is up to your cloud service vendor that the methods to encrypting data are different. As a result, if you are going to encrypt your data, you should ask for the best methods that are appropriate for you.

What is more, SOX also has influences on IT offices which have electronic records by making sure that all entrepreneur records, with both mails as well as other electronic records, are protected up to five years or more. Any failure can lead to fines or even crime. Until now, only 33 percent of cloud service vendors are adopting SOX.

  1. ISO 27001

Also 33 percent of cloud service vendors are following the standard ISO 27001. This is a standard which was introduced in the year of 2005 with the purpose of providing users with a model for setting up, installing, running, managing, checking as well as maintaining their Information Security Management System, which is also shortly written as ISMS. The system here is a framework of both policies and procedures that have all legal controls within risk control processes of a company.

  1. Safe Harbor

Nowadays, 25 percent of cloud service vendors follow the Safe Harbor regulatory, which is a process for companies which save their customer data. The aim of this standard is to help avoid accidental information loss. The companies that follow this standard Safe Harbor must follow the main guidelines which are Notice, Choice, Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity, Access and Enforcement. Following all this can help users be announced when their data is gather as well as how the data could be utilized, provide users with the right to choose data gathering and deliver data to third parties as well. In addition, the users also have access to information about them and then they are able to whether adjust or remove if that information is not true about them. Last but not least, security means that their collected data can be protected from being loss or being attacked.
