Cloud computing is the new normal. Companies are now shifting core technology operations into the cloud to reduce the costs of IT infrastructure, and make business operations more efficient and agile. Security Info Watch brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Challenges of cloud security and managing digital risk.”

Moving large amounts of data can come with risks. However, migrating data to the cloud should bear no more risk than storing data on-premise, which still holds some risk.

Cloud computing is not a new technology. As data keeps migrating into the cloud without secured networks to transport it, the lack of trust between customers and cloud service providers continues to grow. 

With an effective process in place to assess the associated risks to transition to the cloud successfully, a more resilient organization can be created that is ready to embrace change and rise to the challenges of new opportunities.
