    What is data security in cloud computing?

  • #2
    Hello Lucifer,

    Cloud data security is the combination of technology solutions, policies, and procedures that you implement to protect cloud-based applications and systems, along with the associated data and user access.
    • Confidentiality: protecting the data from unauthorized access and disclosure
    • Integrity: safeguard the data from unauthorized modification so it can be trusted
    • Availability: ensuring the data is fully available and accessible when it’s needed
    You need to consider data security during all stages of cloud computing and the data lifecycle: from development, deployment, or migration of applications and systems, to the management of the cloud environment.

        When it comes to data security, the cloud presents a number of challenges that must be addressed as part of your overall security plan. Cyberattacks and data breaches are the largest threats as you rely more on the cloud to acquire, store, and analyze crucial data.

          The following are some of the most common cloud-related hazards that businesses face:

          Noncompliance with regulatory regulations—whether it's the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), cloud computing makes meeting compliance requirements more difficult.

          Data loss and leaks—poor security practices, such as cloud system misconfigurations or threats such as insiders, can result in data loss and leaks.

            Choosing the correct cloud service and putting in place your own security measures, on the other hand, presents a number of issues for businesses. With so many cloud platforms on the market these days, it's more vital than ever to be sure the solution you choose supports data integrity, confidentiality, and availability.

              Data integrity is a critical aspect of cloud data security, as it prevents illegal alteration or deletion and ensures that data stays as it was when it was first uploaded. The following are the top threats to cloud data integrity:
              • Errors caused by humans
              • Threats from within
              • Intruders with malicious intent
              • Hardware that has been compromised
              • Errors in transfer
              • Mistakes in configuration

                One of the most significant advantages of moving to the cloud is that data is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection. Furthermore, cloud services might help you prevent on-site device and server failures and outages. Furthermore, cloud computing's data redundancy gives you peace of mind by ensuring that your data is backed up and protected against data loss.

                  Cloud data security is the set of technical solutions, policies, and procedures you use to safeguard cloud-based apps and systems, as well as the data and user access they include.
                  • Data confidentiality: preventing unwanted access and disclosure.
                  • Integrity: protect data from unauthorized changes so that it may be trusted.
                  • Availability: ensuring that data is readily available and accessible whenever it is required.
                  From the creation, implementation, or migration of applications and systems through the administration of the cloud environment, data security must be considered at all stages of cloud computing and the data lifecycle.
