Companies must take a share of cloud security responsibility

April 13, 2018 / Cliff Saran

The cloud is seen as highly secure and more and more critical data is being held in public clouds, but organisations need to adapt their internal security processes. Organisations are struggling to protect their data amid a growing number of security breaches, new research from Oracle and KPMG has warned. Only 14% of the organisations surveyed said they are able to effectively analyse and respond to the vast majority (75-100%) of their security event data. In the report, Mary Ann Davidson, chief security officer at Oracle, wrote: “Realistically, given the scope of patches released on a weekly basis, most organisations cannot patch everything they need to, much less do it fast enough. Cloud providers, with greater automation and the ability of DevOps to integrate new/improved components rapidly, can more quickly close the gap between vulnerability discovery, patch production and patch application.”
