Cloud security architecture

Cloud security architecture refers to the structured design and implementation of security measures within a cloud computing environment. It includes strategies, policies, and technologies to safeguard data, applications, and infrastructure hosted in the cloud. Key components include access controls, encryption, identity management, and monitoring systems. A well-designed cloud security architecture aims to mitigate risks, address compliance requirements, and ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data in the cloud. Regular assessments and updates are essential to adapt to evolving threats and maintain a robust defense against potential security breaches.
