Security has been the biggest concern among businesses exploring the public cloud since the dawn of the cloud computing age. Cloud security is a fundamentally new landscape for many companies. While many security principles stay the same as on-premises, the implementation is often very different. This overview provides a snapshot of five best practices for cloud security.
#1 Strengthen Access Control
All users are required to utilize strong authentication. Compromised user accounts are frequently used in cyberattacks to access a company’s internal resources. Cyberattacks can be prevented by requiring multi-factor authentication for every user. If that’s not an option for your company, at the very least, force users to use strong passwords that attackers won’t guess and employ multi-factor authentication for security experts, system administrators, and anybody else with privileged access to systems and networks.
#2 Security Awareness training for staff
The most common source of data breaches is human mistakes. As a result, you must arm your employees with the knowledge they need to deal with the threats they encounter. Educate your employees about the best practices for handling cyber threats and behaviors that jeopardize personal and organizational security.

#3 Protect the Network
Assuring the usability and integrity of your network and data is known as network security. Thus, our security solutions must meet the challenges of the evolving threats. Below is the checklist to mitigate threats:
- Keep strong firewall protection
- Create a micro-segmented network
- Enable distributed denial of service protection.
#4 Secure apps & data
Protect data, apps, and infrastructure through a layered, defense-in-depth strategy across identity, data, hosts, and networks.
#5 Updated Security Policies
Businesses frequently have antiquated security policies that ignore new technology, cyber dangers, and cybersecurity best practices. Therefore, it is essential to update the guidelines first, then your security practices and employee training to ensure that everyone complies with the new policies.
