Understanding Shared Responsibility for Cloud Security

Uncategorized

With the COVID-19 pandemic changing the business practices worldwide, the traditional workplaces has transformed to more of digital workplaces. Now employees are holding much of the meetings via video teleconferencing tools and communication tools like Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Google Hangouts. This is making the cloud busier than ever, and cloud security important than ever.

The public Cloud follows a shared responsibility between the Cloud Service Provider (CSP) and the end user (you). There are several aspects of cloud security for data classification, network controls, authentications etc. that needs to be taken care of. Also the physical security need clear owners.

Cloud Security follows a shared responsibility model where certain aspects of cloud security is taken care by the cloud customer, some other aspects by provider and some aspects by both. Here’s a chart that defines the responsibilities that lie within the different cloud environments.

Shared Responsibility – Cloud customer vs Cloud Provider
