Identity and access issues topped the list of concerns of IT pros in the Cloud Security Alliance's annual Top Threats to Cloud Computing: The Pandemic 11 report released earlier this month. "Data breaches and data loss were the top concerns last year," says CSA Global Vice President of Research John Yeoh. "This year, they weren't even in the top 11."
"What that tells me is the cloud customer is getting a lot smarter," Yeoh continues. "They're getting away from worrying about end results—a data breach or loss is an end result—and looking at the causes of those results (data access, misconfigurations, insecure applications) and taking control of them."
