This year we’ve seen massive malware attacks spanning from nation-state campaigns originating in North Korea and Russia to popular restaurants and everything in between. Each new incident serves as a grim reminder to business leaders that hackers will not relent. Yet with cloud adoption growing rapidly in the enterprise, the odds of a malware infection spreading and leading to a potential breach are increasing.
According to a study conducted by the Ponemon Institute, almost 90 percent of businesses believe an increase in cloud usage will increase the probability of a data breach – and this trend isn’t going away anytime soon. As mobility and flexibility continue to be central to the modern workplace, cloud adoption – and the dangers that come with it – are going to become more prevalent than ever.
