2018 Global Cloud Data Security Study

Download the report to understand key trends in data governance and security practices for cloud-based services.


This study surveyed more than 3,200 IT and IT security practitioners worldwide (including Australia) to gain a better understanding of the key trends in data governance and security practices for cloud-based services and found regional disparities: 

  • German businesses are more careful at securing confidential or sensitive information in the cloud (61%) than Indian (49%), Australian (46%) and Japanese (31%) organizations
  • Half of global organizations believe that payment information (54%) and customer data (49%) is at risk in the cloud
  • Only 36% uses encryption, tokenization or other cryptographic solution to secure data at rest in the cloud
  • Over half (57%) think using the cloud increases compliance risk

"The benefit of the cloud is its convenience, scalability and cost control in offering options to businesses that they would not be able to access or afford on their own, particularly when it comes to security. However, while securing data is easier, there should never be an assumption that cloud adoption means information is automatically secure. Just look at the recent Accenture and Uber breaches as examples of data in the cloud that has been left exposed. No matter where data is, the appropriate controls like encryption and tokenization need to be placed at the source of the data. Once these are in place, any issues of compliance should be resolved.”
