The Cloud is Only as Secure as its Provider: What to Know Before You Migrate

Research has shown that one of the biggest concerns about cloud migration is security. Will your cloud successfully identify and counter the growing number of increasingly sophisticated cyber threats? Three quarters of CIOs view cyber threats as having the second most severe impact on their organizations next to global recession, according to CIO's 2014 State of the CIO research. This white paper will provide a check list of security concerns that need to be addressed before migrating mission critical applications to the cloud. When it comes to the safety of your data, one overriding concern should be the cloud provider. How much experience do they have? Do they have industry-leading physical and logical security? What is their security and data reliability track record? How fast could a provider recover in the event of a successful attack? Is your provider transparent to customers? These and many other questions must be answered before you entrust your data to a cloud provider.
