Considerations for Government Agencies When Migrating to the Cloud
The benefits of cloud capabilities have been proven across government as agencies reap savings, improve security and deliver mission-serving solutions faster. However, as agencies migrate workloads to cloud infrastructures, federal IT managers must ensure that functions in the cloud adhere to their agency’s compliance and security policies.
According to research firm Gartner, through 2022, at least 95 percent of cloud security failures will be because of customer errors. Gartner suggests Chief Information Officers (CIOs) can combat this by implementing and enforcing policies on cloud ownership, responsibility and risk acceptance.
In this white paper, “Cyber Security Compliance in a Cloud Smart Era”, we explore steps that agencies can take to build a strong cloud security strategy to ensure detection, protection, and visibility across on-premises IT infrastructures, hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
