With several high-profile security breaches occurring in recent months – CIOs, business leaders and IT teams are focusing their attention on securing and safeguarding data. This is especially true when it comes to cloud.
Jay Heiser, a research VP at Gartner, advises that CIOs change their approach. All too often, CIOs are asking: “Is the cloud secure?” But they should actually be asking “Am I using the cloud securely?” and if not, “What should I be doing to use the cloud securly?”
“CIOs need to ensure their security teams are not holding back cloud initiatives with unsubstantiated cloud security worries. Exaggerated fears can result in lost opportunity and inappropriate spending.”
CIOs must change their line of questioning from “Is the cloud secure?” to “Am I using the cloud securely?” Heiser helps CIOs find the right answers and solutions to this question with recommendations for developing a cloud strategy and predictions for the future of cloud security.
