Taking Care of Your Data Responsibilities in a Shared Responsibility Model in the Cloud

  • What many clients don’t realize is that whilst the third party’s infrastructure is secured and regularly tested, your implementation of the environment is not.
  • Take AWS, one of the popular cloud service and infrastructure providers, for example. They work on a Shared Responsibility Model. Their (AWS) backend is secured, but the client is responsible for the configuration of their own environment, services and even encryption setting.
  • Cloud deployments aren’t reducing your responsibilities of data protection. They’re increasing your attack surface and threat landscape of data you’re still responsible for protecting.
