Accelerating Cloud Security Resilience with Deployflow

With the world of tech experiencing profound transformation and continuous advancements, adopting cloud services promises significant cost savings, increased stability, and greater flexibility. However, many companies that embark on a cloud-first journey fail to realize their full potential of the cloud due to cyber-security issues. According to BCG, 50% of companies cite cybersecurity as the main inhibitor of this journey. 

This usually happens because most companies start their cloud journey without determining the cloud strategy that will help them continuously and meticulously protect their cloud infrastructure. While many companies decide to migrate to the cloud to enable data strategies and drive business transformation, simply moving to the cloud will not solve all of their problems. They need a mix of cloud and cyber skill sets to create a holistic cloud strategy based on secure-by-design principles, which include integrating layers of security at the earliest possible stage of their cloud journey. Companies with mature cloud and security technologies are more agile and resilient. 

How to embrace the cloud security principles from the start?

In our perspective, companies need to change their approach to cloud adoption and cybersecurity to evolve in the ever-growing market. To provide trust and enable better usage of cloud technologies, companies should embrace cloud security as their differentiator and promote it as a key cloud adoption accelerator. 

While DevSecOps plays an important role in accelerating cloud security, bringing teams with extensive knowledge of incorporating cloud security throughout cloud migration is simply not enough. Companies need to shift their mindset from protecting their infrastructure with the best security practices to building an environment where security is incorporated strategically across every point, process, application, or infrastructure. Once companies realize the benefits cloud security can bring to the entire cloud adoption, they will start perceiving it as a cloud resilience accelerator, not a blocker. 

There is a significant knowledge gap among organizations. To overcome the barriers and implement security from the start, a bolder approach and continuous education across the organization are mandatory. 

Here are a few key steps organisation need to make to embrace security from the start:

Identify your business strategy — You must first think about the key goals you want to achieve. Technology should come next as a key enabler of your

Embrace security — Incorporate cloud-native security capabilities that will accelerate your cloud resilience and allow you to migrate to the cloud seamlessly

Define security requirements — Identify security controls suitable for your applications and make sure the teams working on security implementation ensure these requirements comply with regulations, frameworks and relevant laws. 

Build a cloud security center of excellence — Create a synergy between cloud and cybersecurity teams to ensure transformation happens simultaneously on both ends. 

Lead by example —To enable this transformation and turn it into a success, the C-suite and leadership should invest their efforts in enabling faster adoption and providing needed assistance and education to overcome the security perception about the cloud.

Continually assess and improve — While cybersecurity experts and consultants can help you develop cyber skills, processes, and capabilities, they can also enable you to take ownership of your cybersecurity and risk management. This way, they align with your ambitions and plans, empowering you to improve continuously.
