In Part 2 of What to Do In the Unlikely Case Your Public Cloud Is Hacked we continue to look at the sorts of things you should do if your public cloud is hacked.
If you have chosen your cloud provider carefully you can feel confident that your data is secure. Most cloud providers update their STM solutions, ensuring your information is safe.
However, it is worth remembering the following just in case the unthinkable happens.
Rather than dwelling on the loss, it is best to look forward and learn from the experience. The emergency shows that there are holes in your security strategy or tools that need fixing. Revising your security best practices straight away ensures that the data breach won’t happen again in the future.
The truth always comes out. This is not just a general life wisdom. It also applies to business. Keeping the security breach secret does more harm than good.
If important personal or sensitive information have been compromised – such as credit card details or social security numbers, the owners must know about it.
Send out advice on how to handle the breach and how to spot fraud. In specific cases you might also have to contact the regulatory authority in charge.
Picking the best cloud provider can save you the hassle of having to deal with security breaches and attacks.
