The Irish Data Protection Commission released guidance for organizations to follow in order to ensure their cloud-based environments are secure. The commission recommends organizations review their default security settings, create clear policies and properly train staff, understand and monitor the data that is stored in cloud-based environments, and implement strong authentication procedures. “Cloud-based environments offer many advantages to organisations; however, they also introduce a number of technical security risks which organisations should be aware of, including data breaches, hijacking of accounts, and unauthorised access to personal data,” the DPC said in a statement. “Organisations should determine and implement a documented policy and apply the appropriate technical security and organisational measures to secure any cloud-based environments they utilise.”
