Cloud Advisory

Cloud services are becoming increasingly popular for businesses, offering a wide range of advantages but also a number of risks that need to be understood to ensure optimum security.

The popularity of cloud services can be explained by the fact that they are constantly evolving, offering greater flexibility and accessibility. However, it is important to bear in mind the risks that these solutions represent: 

  • Confidentiality and security of information: You remain responsible for the confidentiality and security of your information.
  • Loss of control, monitoring, audit and application capability: control and access to information can become complex.
  • Dependence on service level agreements: It is essential to set the right terms of access to limit the loss of flexibility 
  • Cloud provider lock-in: It's important to think about a possible migration of services
  • Cloud provider lock-out: It is necessary to ensure business continuity to avoid disruption in the event of cloud services becoming unavailable. 
  • Shared environments: Your data will probably be stored in a shared environment, so it's important to understand how it's held and to make sure it's properly protected.
