Cybersecurity: How to Keep Your Data Safe in the Cloud
Posted by Armanino Financial Advisory Team
During the September EVOLUTION conference by Armanino, cybersecurity consultant and former White House cybersecurity advisor Rand Morimoto discussed the growing need rethink how companies are defending against digital threats. According to research firm Gartner, 60% of business users will be running cloud-based office system by 2020. As the cloud has become increasingly prevalent and beneficial for a more connected and mobile workforce, the security risks have changed significantly. Cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated while the general population is shirking simple security procedures like using different login credentials for various accounts.
The recent article Cybersecurity: Cloud Users Need to Re-examine Their Digital Defenses shares insights from Morimoto’s keynote address at Armanino’s EVOLUTION around evolving digital risks and how companies can defend themselves. Morimoto discusses why “single sign-on” can prevent data breaches and how to simply classify your business data for better security.
As Morimoto comments, “The cloud is going to improve our business if we adopt it…but on the flip side, we have to be able to maintain control and manage our information.”
