So far, no.

I see no need to supply examples since the failures continue to happen.

I hope your IT/CIO/CIT and such do their best and keep all data not only password protected but encrypted. Both on the cloud and during transfer but leaks continue to happen.

Do you know why?

Encryption helps to make it secure.

Hi,

Migrating to cloud storage is not a guarantee that your data is protected. Still, there may be a risk of losing your data.

To ensure the safety of your data, it needs to be encrypted both at rest and in transit. Encrypting your data reduces a lot of chances of your data breach.

In the end, the safety of your data migration totally depends on the type of cloud storage you choose. So consider everything and keep monitoring your migration process and the data migrated.

If you find anything suspicious then perform quick action to protect your data.

Much of the data leaked is an inside job as in the people who have access to the unencrypted data.

Migration to the cloud can enhance your organization's risk posture and security rather than making it less secure

Again, it's unsafe.

All the migrations I've seen don't have a backup plan. When the cloud is down, so is your business.

cloud security testing goals

Yes, Cloud is completely safe. Unless it is some random cloud platform that appeared from nowhere and you just signed in without making any research. Cloud data migration should only be done on a trustworthy product that has managed to meet the cloud security testing goals.

It it was, we wouldn't be having all these data leaks.

Remember folk, the folk that want to sell you their cloud system will always write how safe it is. The truth is, it has more problems than your old dedicated in house server.
