Navigating Cloud Security in 2024: Insights and Solutions

Posted byINE

As businesses race towards digital transformation, cloud adoption has become not just a trend but a necessity for staying competitive. This shift comes with its own set of challenges, particularly in ensuring robust security measures. The "Future-Proofing Cloud Security: Challenges and Solutions in 2024" report delves deep into these issues, offering insights based on a survey of more than 700 IT/IS leaders. The report explores the state of cloud security today and how organizations can navigate these challenges effectively.

The Current Landscape: Cloud Adoption and Challenges

Over 90% of respondents are already operating in the cloud, shifting focus from migration to strategic adoption and integration for optimal efficiency and security.  A Thales survey found that 75% of companies classify more than 40% of their data stored in the cloud as sensitive. Respondents to our survey noted that the primary threats to keeping this data safe were:

  • Human error 
  • Ransomware/malware
  • Third-party vendor security concerns

Effective Solutions: Training and Tools

One of the standout findings from the report is the effectiveness of employee training programs in enhancing cloud security. Organizations that invest in regular training sessions and best practices like multi-factor authentication are better equipped to mitigate risks. Additionally, the use of hybrid security tools, such as Splunk and CloudStrike, alongside native cloud security solutions, proves to be a successful strategy for many businesses.

Investment in Training: Closing the Gap

While the importance of training is evident, the report highlights a significant gap in investment, with only 1 in 5 companies prioritizing regular training for their IT/IS teams. However, increased investment in cloud-specific training could significantly improve overall security posture. Solutions like expert-led training, immersive lab-based learning, skill assessments, and certifications offer a comprehensive approach to upskilling teams and addressing the human error factor.

Looking ahead, organizations are gearing up to tackle emerging threats such as zero-day vulnerabilities and advanced persistent threats (APTs). Despite facing challenges like a lack of skilled personnel, budget constraints, and compliance issues, a majority of organizations recognize the need for investment in cloud security training. This proactive approach is crucial for staying ahead in a rapidly evolving threat landscape.
