While cloud companies and vendors will try their best to make each one of their solutions safe and resistant to most known or unknown attacks, itâs a fact thereâre always going to be some gaps. This is why it is absolutely necessary that youâre aware of some important cloud encryption guidelines Here for your perusal, we list out a few:
1. Encryption at all Levels

Whether the data is in use, at rest or in transit on the Internet, you need make sure that it is fully encrypted at all times. Always choose a cloud computing solution which ensures strong data encryption at all of these 3 levels. Any vulnerability can work as a way out for hackers.
2. Prepare for External as well as Internal Attacks

You need to keep your data safe from not just external but internal attacks too. Itâs great that you trust all of your employees but what if any one of them is lured by one of your competitors or a hackersâ group?

Snow den is a fine example we all shouldn't be forgetting, right?

Not all employees may have full access to your data but it is true that hackers often manage to âget inâ by exploiting tiny security leaks.

Make sure to fix accountability and train your employees on how to really handle the encrypted data.
3. Carefully Review all Of Your Cloud Encryption Options

Cloud encryption is available for public and private clouds both. Make sure to inquire about the cloud encryption method in detail when evaluating a solution. Do not let your decision be guided by the reputation of a company or price alone.

Finally, make it a point to encrypt all of your keys and create an in-house password protection policy.
