Building Trust In The Security of Cloud

Government leaders presented with information needed to better understand the security underpinning cloud and fully embrace the technology

techUK has published a paper, Building Trust in the Security of Cloud, which provides local government leaders with the information they need to better understand the security underpinning cloud and fully embrace the technology.

The Cloud is a flexible, stable and secure platform that consumers, businesses and government alike, can benefit from using on a much wider scale. While many are already seeing the potential advantages cloud offers, often potential users are held back from harnessing cloud benefits due to concerns about security.

For example, 61% of UK SMEs say they are worried that information might get lost, stolen or damaged in the cloud. These concerns must be addressed through practical guidance from industry so that customers feel safe in the knowledge that, in choosing the cloud, they are making decision that is the best (and the most secure) option for their specific needs.

Sue Daley, Head of Cloud, Data, Analytics and Artificial Intelligence at techUK, said: “The next wave of our digital revolution is being powered by the internet of things, big data analytics and artificial intelligence; cloud computing underpins all of these developments. Given the importance of this technology to the UK’s digital future, it is vital that users understand the security benefits of the Cloud and that advice delivered today addresses the users’ concerns.

“We want to take away all the confusion around cloud and highlight that cloud services can actually offer much greater levels of security and resilience as required by users. Our intention with these papers is to provide practical advice that will help consumers, businesses and local government leaders feel empowered to ask the right questions and make the right choices when considering a move to the Cloud.”
