The year is coming to an end. Many IT managers and CIO find themselves under pressure to meet deadlines and really show what they can do before the year is over and reflection on this year’s performance starts.

With less than two month to go, it might feel like there is not much you can do anymore. But there are two things you can definitely achieve before the end of the year. Two things that require relatively little input, but provide great payoffs in the future.

Develop and implement a security strategy

No matter if you are using a data centre, a hybrid cloud, or the public could. Security should be at the centre of everything you’re doing. Think key management, encryption, the use of identities, firewalls and the like.

Many enterprises move to the cloud without a strong security plan in place. They often fail to develop policies and guidelines regarding the selection of technology. As a result, they are becoming an open target for security breaches and data theft.

Don’t make the same mistakes. Between now and the end of the year you have the chance to lay out a plan and implementation strategies. Be sure to include industry compliance measures, as the new GDPR is going into effect in May 2018, – you need to act now.

Develop and implement a governance strategy

Next to security, governance is one of the most important factors you need to consider when migrating to the cloud. We said it before and we’ll say it again. Governance is the Number 1 Secret to success in the cloud.

Without governance, your cloud computing activities can get out of hand in no time. It will affect security, as you don’t know who is using what application and infrastructure. In addition, you won’t be able to keep track of expenses without a strong governance strategy.

You can get your cloud computing operations under control by the end of the year with a strong security and governance strategy.
