We have all heard the proverb that teaches, “slow and steady wins the race.” But what if slow isn’t an option? In the wake of COVID-19, many businesses sped through the digitization process to transform their businesses in record time. In their haste, important data protection measures and security considerations were either undermined, or simply not considered.
To meet the heightened demand for cloud-based applications, businesses are migrating most, if not all, apps, files, and other business elements to public or private clouds. This helps users work more efficiently from home, but it also means more information is unprotected and available for cybercriminals to grab. The inconvenient truth is that, while most businesses have been distracted by digital transformation (DX), sensitive data has been left on a metaphorical windowsill, like a freshly baked apple pie.
