Working Groups: Top Threats Data Security

The report provides organizations with an up-to-date, expert-informed understanding of cloud security concerns in order to make educated risk-management decisions regarding cloud adoption strategies.

The Top Threats reports have traditionally aimed to raise awareness of threats, risks and vulnerabilities in the cloud. Such issues are often the result of the shared, on-demand nature of cloud computing.  In this fourth installment, we again surveyed 241 industry experts on security issues in the cloud industry. This year our respondents rated 11 salient threats, risks and vulnerabilities in their cloud environments. The Top Threats Working Group used the survey results along with its expertise to create the final 2019 report.
