Beware of Top Cloud Vulnerabilities that are Dangerous for Organization Data

Cloud vulnerabilities are increasing due to cyber criminals aiming for organization data

Cloud computing is emerging as one of the topmost cutting-edge technologies to be adopted in digital transformation era. Multiple organizations are highly instigated to adopt cloud computing in businesses to get hold of organization data efficiently and effectively without any external trouble. The global cloud computing market is expected to reach US$947.3 billion in 2026 with a CAGR of 16.3%. But, there is an external trouble in the cloud— weaknesses of cloud or cloud vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities can create an adverse effect on the organization data at any point of time. Though, cloud computing helps in effective data management from any place across the world, organizations should be aware of the potential risk factors associated with this. Let’s learn about the top cloud vulnerabilities that are dangerous for organization data.

 

Top cloud vulnerabilities for protecting organization data

 

Misconfiguration of cloud storage

Organizations tend to be in a hurry to integrate cloud computing in the existing system for adopting digital transformation in Industry 4.0. Sometimes this hurry in the process causes misconfiguration of cloud storage. This error is an attractive weak link for cybercriminals to approach the system for committing multiple cyberattacks. Misconfiguration of cloud storage can cause a massive loss in the business account. The aftereffect of this cloud vulnerability is cloud computing security breach.

 

Insecure APIs

Insecure APIs are one of the favourite cloud vulnerabilities of cybercriminals. They look for insecure Application User Interface (API) to gain multiple communication lines for exploiting the system through cloud computing process. Insecure APIs provide large volumes of enterprise application datasets to cybercriminals. Organization data should be protected from having insecure APIs by looking after inadequate authentication and insufficient authorization.

 

Compliance violations

Organization data should be protected from one of the common cloud vulnerabilities known as compliance violations. It is essential for organizations to keep under control of the data accessibility regulation for effective data management. Security risk pops up when it is difficult to keep track of employees using cloud computing to get access to organization data across the world.

 

Weak access management

One of the top cloud vulnerabilities is weak access management of cloud computing system in an organization. Weak access management helps in organization data breach, web applications breach, stolen credentials, and many more. Weak access management includes inactive assigned users, different admin accounts, improper use, and so on.

 

System vulnerabilities

System vulnerabilities are one of the top cloud vulnerabilities that can be dangerous for organization data. The existing computer system of an organization may integrate insecure third-party application with cloud computing risks leading to ineffective data management. There can be multiple factors related to system vulnerabilities— lack of input validation, improper error management, insufficient logging, and many more.

Thus, there are more cloud vulnerabilities, other than the above-mentioned areas, that can be dangerous for organization data and holds a potential to get compromised in the cloud computing process. There are some strong benefits of cloud computing, but there are risky weaknesses of cloud— be it private, public, multi or hybrid. So, it is recommended to be aware of these cloud vulnerabilities while integrating cloud computing in the existing system.
