While cloud computing becomes the new norm for many organizations, IT security in the cloud is still a very confusing subject. Cloud security covers many aspects such as: identity management, governance, data & information protection, secure networking and many more.
Solutions for these various aspects may be different for SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service).
Introducing “The Beginner’s Guide to Cloud Security”, in this guide we will focus on IaaS, and address some of the common challenges organizations face when starting to deploy in the cloud.
Some of the topics that we cover in this guide are:
- Dedicated vs. Shared infrastructure
- Public Cloud vs. Private Cloud
- Common vulnerabilities in the cloud
- The shared responsibility for security in the cloud
- Mitigating security risks in the cloud
This guide is intended for all levels of security expertise and organization size. We hope this guide will become a “checklist” and will help you ask the right questions regarding cloud security when the time is right.
