What are your peers doing when it comes to cloud security?

Organizations continue to adopt cloud computing at a rapid pace to benefit from the promise of increased efficiency, better scalability, and improved agility.

While cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) continue to expand security services to protect their evolving cloud platforms, it is ultimately the customers’ responsibility to secure their data within these cloud environments.

The 2019 Cloud Security Report (download) highlights what is and what is not working for security operations teams in securing their cloud data, systems, and services in this shared responsibility model. The results are a continuation of past challenges: 

  • The top cloud security concerns of cybersecurity professionals are data loss and leakage

Overall, the findings in this report emphasize that security teams must reassess their security posture and strategies, and address the shortcomings of legacy security tools to protect their evolving IT environments. This 2019 Cloud Security Report has been produced by Cybersecurity Insiders, the 400,000 member information security community, to explore how organizations are responding to the evolving security threats in the cloud.  Download the full report at
