For a third of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) thinking about migrating their infrastructure to the cloud, security is not a strategic priority, new research has claimed.
A new Amazon Web Services report surveying more than 800 C-suite executives, vice presidents, and directors, from global SMBs, discovered ober a third (35%) won’t be prioritizing security in their cloud migration efforts.
Why? There are a number of reasons. The biggest one is that the respondents see it as an added cost and not a growth enabler. This way of thinking, AWS argues, is because 41% haven’t delivered any security training, and just 43% plan on doing so in the next 12 months.
