Cybersecurity in the Cloud


In today’s world of technology, more and more technology companies are offering their applications in the cloud. Technology deployments can be exclusively on a customer premise, in a hybrid of customer premised in the cloud and customer site, or completely hosted and managed in the cloud.

It is more important than ever to have a well thought out security plan to ensure that all data remains intact and not vulnerable to outside threats. There are many certifications that any CIO or Information Technology team can take on to ensure system integrity. Some of these include:

Top Cloud Certifications

  • AWS Certified Solutions Architect
  • Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge
  • Certified System Administrator in Red Hat OpenStack
  • Cloud Certified Professional
  • Cloud Credential Council

Rigorous testing is essential to ensure integrity of data and internal system. A plan and questioning what if any current certifications exist is key in this new exciting era of technology but one that is also fraught with risks of data intrusion, fraud, malware, ransomware, and other nefarious attacks. A plan also should include disaster recovery, ensuring backups systems are on a completely disparate site, and rigorous internal and external testing. Data and cloud services are now becoming more important than ever—it is essential to have a proper plan in place to ensure the integrity of that data. After all—that truly is the lifeblood of the organization.
