Year after year it is getting worse - more incidents and bigger damages - despite our continued efforts in security. Securing a data center from infrastructure to applications takes immense effort due to innumerable connections on the inside and to the outside. This price only a few businesses are willing to pay and as a result, most IT risks are not managed consistently. The next damage will occur earlier than expected and be more extensive than imagined.
Businesses should realize how their diverse in-house IT seduced them to overcommit to risk and how to stop the habit.
The only logical solution is to reduce the exposition.
Too often, attempts to improve security by increasing efforts have only provided short-term results and failed in the long term.
Strategically, moving your computing to the cloud may be the best answer.
Cloud providers manage the computing infrastructure in compliance with high security standards at scale.
Businesses can refocus their IT experts on their specific applications.
In a much smaller scope, the probability of an incident can be reduced much more effectively.
The critical success factor to achieve this transition is the cloud know-how:
- The interface to the cloud services must be managed in terms of security.
- Applications should be deployed with a life cycle view on low operational efforts
