Cloud computing security

What is Cloud computing?

Cloud computing is a technology paradigm that allows individuals and organizations to access and use computer resources and services over the Internet. Instead of owning and managing physical servers and infrastructure, users can leverage the resources provided by cloud service providers.

Important of Cloud Security

Cloud security is crucial because it protects sensitive data, ensures regulatory compliance, and safeguards against cyber threats in cloud environments. Breaches can lead to data theft, legal consequences, and reputational damage. It's essential to maintain data integrity, control user access, and protect cloud infrastructure. Downtime due to security incidents can disrupt operations, resulting in lost revenue and productivity. A shared responsibility model means users must secure their data and applications.
