What are the Security Risks of Cloud Computing
Security Risks of Cloud Computing
There are several security risks associated with cloud computing, including:
1. Data Breaches:
Understanding Shared Responsibility
2. Insider Threats:
Cloud service providers and their employees may have access to customer data, which could be potentially compromised by malicious insiders.
In an organization, insider threats are security risks that originate from within. They can be intentional (e.g., an employee who deliberately steals data or sabotages systems) or unintentional (e.g., an employee who clicks on a malicious link and unwittingly allows hackers to access the organization’s systems). Often, insiders target legitimate systems and data, making them particularly dangerous. To mitigate insider threats, organizations should implement security measures such as access controls and user activity monitoring, and they should also have policies in place to address employee misconduct. It is also important to educate employees about security best practices and the potential consequences of not following them.
