Posted: January 09, 2013

Increasing your use of cloud computing? Great! Making these common security mistakes? Not great!


There are so many cloud computing service providers.  It is important to understand the cloud and the service provider.  According to CISCO and other security professionals there are 7 deadly sins of cloud computing:

  1. Failing to check IDs at the door
  2. Letting demands for (secure) APIs fall on deaf ears.
  3. Not keeping sufficient independence from cloud providers.
  4. Thinking you are outsourcing risk and accountability.
  5. Signing up cloud solutions without IT and security involvement.
  6. Overestimating cloud security
  7. Failing to understand the costs.
