Cloud Security: Protecting Your Data in the Cloud

Cloud Security is the process of protecting data, applications, and infrastructure that are stored in the cloud from unauthorized access, misuse, and data loss. This involves the use of various security measures such as encryption, authentication, access control, and monitoring to ensure that data stored in the cloud is secure. Cloud security also involves the implementation of policies and procedures to ensure that cloud-based services are being used in a secure and compliant manner. Cloud security is an important part of any organization’s overall security strategy, as it can help protect sensitive data and applications from malicious threats and unauthorized access.
