There have been security breaches in all sectors of the industry. Moving to a cloud or a hybrid cloud environment has become a routine for companies which is why it is important to understand how your data is secured and protected in the cloud. If your company's data evolve company finances, trade secrets, methodologies than data protection is a compulsory component.

It is important to make sure the cloud service you are opting for is secure or not. Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS are market-leading cloud providers who also have the best resources on the ground to maintain the security of their cloud data centers.

It is important to know beforehand what procedures and protocols do your cloud provider follows if a security breach happens.

Encryption services are included in almost every cloud provider's subscription so implement it.

Make sure the devices that have access to the cloud are fully secured and the employees accessing the data on the cloud are following the right protocols.

Securing passwords is the most important aspect in cloud protection and many employees are known to be sloppy when it comes to password protection that results in disaster most of the time.

Implementing two-factor authentication is one the best for securing passwords, which can be through fingerprint scanner, facial recognition, SMS (SMS have seen to be vulnerable in recent past especially in the US which is why it should be avoided).

Set up data transfer procedures by ensuring point-to-point security for extra encryption. Utilize SSL for all communications.

Educating employees and monitoring them regularly on how they are following data security protocols.

Backup data consistently either by setting up a multi-cloud setup or a hybrid cloud environment that would also allow you to create backups in multiple geo-locations. For a multi-cloud setup, you could opt for either the same cloud or different cloud.
