Another story has run today about an unsecured cloud database. This time it was China’s Shanghai Jiao Tong University, which exposed over 8TB in email meta data.

Steve Armstrong, Regional Director EMEA at Bitglass:
“The number one responsibility of all organisations should be to defend their data. When migrating to the cloud, enterprises can easily make themselves susceptible to a number of security threats that, if not properly addressed, can expose data on a massive scale. Visibility and control are critical for securing sensitive information in the cloud. Fortunately, cloud access security brokers (CASBs) allow organizations to enforce real-time access control, encrypt sensitive data at rest in the cloud, control the sharing of data with external parties, prevent the leakage of personal information, and more. Shifting to a proactive approach to security will demonstrate that the protection of customer data is being taken seriously. In addition, it could save company’s brand reputation.”
