Many organizations are looking to the public cloud to solve a variety of business challenges, whether it’s achieving greater scalability, global resilience, increased reliability and performance, or to bring applications to market faster. The journey to move applications and workloads to the cloud is complex though, with data security often being top of mind. Some organizations are hesitant to migrate sensitive data to the cloud, as they explore their security options and struggle to understand regulatory demands.
Simply applying a data security strategy designed for on-premise workloads isn’t adequate. It lacks the ability to address cloud-specific requirements and doesn’t take advantage of the great number of security services and capabilities Google Cloud has to offer.
Successfully deploying data to Google Cloud Platform in a way that delivers adequate protections, meets compliance requirements, and reduces risk, requires reassessing legacy data security strategies and creating a cloud-ready program. This involves understanding how the cloud impacts your current strategy and pivoting the strategy to embrace the great capabilities available in Google Cloud.
