During times of international turmoil, businesses are more at risk from cyberattacks. New working practices put increasing pressure on businesses to shift to cloud-enabled services that empower productivity from anywhere. However, cloud assets are the biggest targets for cyberattacks. The increase in cloud exploitation and attacks is directly due to the increase in work moving to the cloud, as more sensitive data is then stored on remote servers.
In fact, with remote working in many countries expected to become part of working practices, cybercriminals are finding new ways to manipulate the vulnerabilities of distributed staff. Human error and misconfiguration can easily lead to data breaches.
In this climate, a proactive, comprehensive approach to security is rapidly becoming an important competitive differentiator. This approach requires a more holistic view of both how data is used and stored through the document lifecycle, and how security of this data functions throughout wider business operations.
