Economies of scale, rapid innovation and standard security tooling — all available within the cloud — can improve security for most companies. However, for many organizations, cloud technology is unfamiliar, and roles and responsibilities are not clearly defined by the cloud service provider (CSP) or understood by the cloud user.
In recent years, news headlines regarding cloud-based data breaches would suggest that storing data in the cloud is inherently insecure, but these headlines do not always convey the entire story. More often than not, cloud-based breaches are not the fault of the CSP. Instead, they are the result of user error or inexperience. Users are not always aware of their security responsibilities when it comes to cloud deployments, and it’s possible to make honest mistakes when it comes to a new technology that is sometimes marketed as an autopilot solution in itself.
Speaking of autopilot, let’s look at the increased adoption of driver-assisted technology in everyday vehicles. There have been legitimate concerns and subsequent studies conducted regarding the safety of these features when it comes to driver vigilance. While there are many benefits to these technologies, such as adhering to speed limits and driver comfort, one particular study found there was a decline in driver attention — essentially, a false sense of security set in, resulting in accidents and loss of life. Is this the fault of the manufacturer, or is it
