The cloud has evolved from a helpful business tool to reduce costs and speed the delivery of IT services to a strategic resource that allows organizations to do more with less and better utilize our valuable people resources. However, with more and more data – much of which deemed mission critical – created, stored, and managed in the cloud, bad actors will naturally take aim. It’s up to us to do more to secure our cloud digital transformation. In anticipation of more penetration attempts, cloud security will become more intelligent, more automated, and more discerning, driven by advances in AI, machine learning, quantum computing, and other transformative technologies.
