IDG Research Services has published the “Cloud Security 2021” study with Arvato Systems and other partners. The results show that companies clearly realize that the cloud offers great potential for increased IT security. However, much remains to be done. […]
The current study “Cloud Security 2021” was jointly conducted with IDG, Arvato Systems and other partners. Among other things, it is shown that about 60 percent of the companies surveyed see the cloud as an opportunity to improve their IT security. At the same time, more than half of the companies do not plan any additional budget for cloud security. And this despite the fact that according to the study, every third company has already suffered economic damage from cloud attacks. Hence, targeted engagement on the topic of cloud security is required.
In this context, it is evident that companies need to make the liability relationship between the cloud provider and the cloud user clearer. The responsibility for cloud security at the same company should also be questioned again and outside support should also be considered. This is essential because cloud security is a very complex field that requires a lot of expertise and experience. Andreas Nolte, Head of Cybersecurity at Arvato Systems: “When it comes to IT security, it becomes clear that Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) must be an important part of a company’s security strategy. Given their specialization, they can offer broad experience and intensely trained teams At Arvato Systems cybersecurity, most mid-sized companies cannot reach the same degree in cybersecurity, he explains: “Companies must be clear about the appropriate level of security for them and, in this context, rely on a comprehensive approach: prevention, detection and response measures combined with Hand in hand with the three levels of compliance, technical security and security operations. “
