16 Potential Cybersecurity Solutions For Protecting Sensitive Data In The Cloud

A recent Forbes Technology Council article explains the multiple cost and productivity benefits for companies as they move to the cloud. Some of these benefits include outsourcing hardware maintenance, the ability to quickly expand and easy access to the latest software. But while the cloud offers convenience, the article looks at how it can potentially add to a company’s cybersecurity risks. A significant cyberattack on a cloud provider , they posit, can trickle down and affect all of that provider’s clients.

For the article, Forbes interviewed 16 industry experts from Forbes Technology Council and asked them to share new and trending cybersecurity paradigms that companies must consider to best protect their sensitive data in the cloud.

"Enforcing least privilege, in which human and machine identities only have access to the resources they need to perform their business functions, is a must in the cloud."
