Liability belongs to You: Misconfigured Clouds and Security
Companies that were sold on Cloud Services as a cost-effective solution to maintaining a corporate server with specialized software were ill-equipped to understand all of the technological security implications of that decision. The level of ill preparation created a welcome opportunity and open playing field for cybercriminals to attack with abandon. The attackers are continually creating new and sophisticated methods for attacks that can be used against businesses unprepared to protect their data from the misconfigured cloud environments that were to securely protect their data. To stop this it is crucial for companies to implement security technologies both on and off-premise that can ensure a rapid response to any and all threats perpetrated by any hackers.
