Data security in the cloud (cloud data security)

Data security in the cloud, also referred to as cloud data security, protects the data stored and processed in cloud environments. The discipline is focused on empowering organizations to leverage that data to meet business goals while still protecting cloud data from exposure risks, breaches and compromises. To make this approach work, it’s imperative for security teams to understand where the sensitive data is and who has access to it, the overall security posture of that data, and how it is being accessed on an ongoing basis.
