The goal of this project was to research a current topic on cloud computing and cloud application deployment that we have not covered in my MIS3406 class and relate the topic to material we have covered in class. As a result, I researched cloud security and learned that it is defined as the protection of data stored online through cloud computing platforms from theft and leakage.
I learned that cloud security is the protection of data stored online through cloud computing platforms from theft and leakage. Methods of providing cloud security include examples such as firewalls and virtual private networks (VPN). Cloud security is important because organizations require it as they move toward their adaptation to become digital and include cloud based tools and services as part of their framework. I also learned what different cloud security solutions are such as IAM and DLP are. An IAM is designed to create digital IDs for all users so that they can be monitored during all data interactions. DLP offers tools and services created to make sure that regulated cloud data is secure. DLP solutions also use a combination of data encryption and remediation alerts to protect all stored data.
