Is Cloud Storage Safer Than Local Storage?
Both cloud storage and local storage provide the ability to store and access files, but which one is safer? Whether you’re a business or personal user, understanding the differences is crucial.

With cloud storage, your data is stored on a remote server, allowing access from any device. Depending on your provider, you can also create an offsite backup. However, cloud services may experience downtime due to server maintenance or other issues.

Opting for local storage means your files are only on your computer or mobile device, limiting sharing options. Additionally, there’s a risk of damage or theft to the hard drive. Despite these risks, it’s essential to maintain a backup on a separate physical drive.

To safeguard against data loss, it’s recommended to backup files on both a physical hard drive and in the cloud, using strong passwords for account protection.

While the cloud offers security measures against hackers, it’s not foolproof. Data can be accessed if not encrypted, emphasizing the importance of choosing a reputable cloud service provider with encryption protocols.

Local storage may be less secure than cloud storage, but it has advantages such as cost-effectiveness and ease of maintenance.

What are the four areas of Cloud Security?
The infrastructure layer includes firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and other network controls, providing a foundation for customer security.

Encryption is a popular method for securing data. When data is encrypted, it is scrambled so that no one else can read it. End-to-end encryption is a good solution for critical data; however, losing the encryption key can make it useless.

Identity management is essential for protecting information. Most cloud service providers rely on encryption, tokenization, and other technologies to secure their customers’ data. Some companies also use multifactor authentication to ensure the identity of their users. Other measures include logging and monitoring changes to data.

A governance program is important for securing cloud environments. This involves creating policies and auditing for compliance and ensuring that there is a single point of accountability.

Data location control is also crucial. It allows cloud providers to restrict copying and reuse of data. If an attacker can pinpoint the data location, they can attack it.

Another practice for securing cloud systems is containerization. When data is stored in a container, it is less likely to be hacked or infected.

What are the top evolving cybersecurity threats to the Cloud?

One of the biggest threats to cloud security is account takeover, which involves eavesdropping on user activity, manipulating data, and redirecting users to illegitimate websites.

Another common threat is ransomware, which can lock up a company’s systems until payment is made and may also lead to malicious leaks of sensitive data.

Sophisticated hackers also use social engineering, phishing for log-in details from employees to gain access to accounts. In the case of spear phishing, messages are tailored to appear more legitimate.

Aside from the cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT) is also becoming a target, with more devices like smartwatches, wearable fitness trackers, and refrigerators connected to networks, many of which are insecure.

Security vulnerabilities include weak passwords, lack of encryption, and misconfigured access points, which can be overcome with network security protocols.

There is also the risk of unauthorized data transfers, which can be mitigated by using network security protocols. However, this remains a challenge for organizations of all sizes.

Another cybersecurity trend is the growing number of insider threats, where insiders misuse their access to company information, potentially causing data breaches by improperly sharing confidential business data.

Companies are also vulnerable to cloud attacks, as cloud services make it easy for employees to share data, increasing the attack surface. Accidental leakage of sensitive data by an employee can have devastating consequences for a company.
