Whose responsibility is cloud security?

Who is responsible for cloud security? Most view it as a shared responsibility between the vendor and the business. However, the business is ultimately responsible for securing its own data. The concern over data exposure has made cloud security a priority, but the challenge has become balancing the organisation’s need for agility while boosting the security of applications and the data as it moves between the various clouds. This presentation will examine the following issues:

  • How secure is your data?
  • To what extent do SaaS vendors' native tools support backup and recovery?
  • There is a common misconception held by some IT professionals that cloud services do not need to have a backup: why this isn't the case
  • Why believing that a SaaS vendor has taken care of your backup is a dangerous assumption - particularly when data has been deleted, but it’s gone unnoticed for a while
  • Seven reasons why it’s important to have a diverse backup strategy
  • What does a diverse backup strategy look like?
