Cloud computing present amazing opportunities to organizations. Never before has it been this easy to build and run new services that provide opportunities.
Regardless of what cloud deployment you are using – you are responsible for securing your own space within that cloud. Using a cloud maintained by someone else does not mean you can, or should, sit back and relax. Insufficient due diligence is a major cause of security failures.
Cloud security is a responsibility that is shared between the cloud provider and the customer. There are basically three categories of responsibilities in the Shared Responsibility Model: responsibilities that are always the provider’s, responsibilities that are always the customer’s, and responsibilities that vary depending on the service model: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), or Software as a Service (SaaS).
Because the public cloud does not have a clear perimeter, it presents a fundamentally different security reality. This becomes even more challenging when adopting modern cloud approaches such as automated Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) methods. You cannot treat security the same way you did when IT was on-premise. You need to adapt to the new reality and implement appropriate security measures in the new landscape.
