Concern for security of data in the cloud worries IT execs

January 11, 2019 / Joseph Goedert

Even as healthcare organizations contemplate moving more computing functions to the cloud, IT execs question the security of their data.A survey from the Cloud Security Alliance, which works to ensure a secure cloud computing environment, found 69 percent of respondent organizations are migrating data for enterprise resource planning applications to the cloud, with nearly 90 percent using a cloud platform to support and protect business critical operations.However, more than half of respondents say they expect security incidents in their clouds to increase this year. Who is accountable for security is unclear. While 60 percent say the cloud service vendor is responsible for a breach, 77 percent of respondents also acknowledge that they themselves should be responsible for securing their cloud applications.
