Ensure employees understand their responsibilities
While ensuring that the cloud is secure is important, it doesn’t count for anything if there is poor data security hygiene within an organisation. Companies need to ensure that their employees understand their personal responsibilities when it comes to protecting data. A typical example: an employee sends a presentation containing financial data to their private email account so that they can review the document over the weekend. This data has left the secure cloud. Companies should therefore communicate to their employees that the cloud is a secure environment and sensitive data should never leave.
