Top Three Security Concern For Your Organization

Why does Information Security concern me and my organization? Information security concerns every organization, because all the information is stored online nowadays because it is easily accessible. Over 70% of the world’s businesses are now operating in the cloud. With the benefits it offers like lower fixed costs, higher flexibility, increased collaboration, and the freedom to work from anywhere, 70% isn’t a big surprise. But still, there are some issues related to the cloud technology. Now, let us have a look at the top three security concerns you must be aware of. In this article, we will give you an idea about the attacks and how it works. So keep reading to know about the security concerns.

1. Malicious Insider, Phishing, and Malware

An attack from inside your organization may seem unlikely, but the insider threat does exist. Employees can use their authorized access to an organization’s cloud-based services to misuse or access information. This is the most favorite way for attackers because 59% of the attacks happen with this. Phishing is the attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details, by utilizing electronic communication. According to research, 55% data theft happens with this method. Malicious code can be injected into cloud services and viewed as part of the software. Nowadays, 45% of the attacks are taking place because of the malicious insiders.

2. Data Breaches

Cloud computing and services are relatively new, still, data breaches existed for years. The question is that: “Storing sensitive data in the cloud rather than on-premise is safe or not?” The research shows that possibility of data breaching is three times more for businesses that utilize the cloud than those that don’t. 53% of the organizations are looking cloud security as their primary concern.

3. Data Lost

Data loss is the most dangerous thing that can happen to an organization. Losing vital information can be disastrous to businesses that don’t have a recovery plan.  Amazon and Google are the examples of an organization that suffered data loss a few years back. Researches show that 37% of the data is lost by the theft of intellectual property. The amount of the data leaked through email, IM, and other resources is approximately 32%. Employers update 21% unauthorized data in the public cloud.
