Having a data resiliency strategy is essential for maintaining business continuity. A good data resiliency strategy includes two factors: backup and disaster recovery solutions. Backups provide recovery points for data or systems that are lost in some capacity. Disaster recovery provides a process by which portion of an environment, or an entire environment that is unavailable can be brought online in another datacenter with minimal data loss and downtime.
Scott Harvey, Atmosera’s VP of Engineering joined Roger Strukhoff, Conference Chair for CloudExpo, to discuss the public cloud ecosystem and the cloud’s evolution, challenges, and best practices, as well as the integral role CSPs play in supporting businesses that host operations in the cloud.

When you think of bank security, the vault is probably the first thing that comes to mind. All of your wealth locked behind a foot of steel and concrete. For decades, that was enough to protect a bank’s most valuable assets. Today, we’re managing a second vault: one filled with customer data, locked behind layers of encryption. The trouble is that today’s bank robbers aren’t working with dynamite, like in the westerns; they’re behind powerful computers.
Smartphone applications allow users to complete tasks in seconds that once required a visit to the bank, such as transfers and depositing paychecks. The cloud facilitates this increased activity, giving banks the computing power necessary to process millions of customer requests and payments through the application at any given moment. And by managing front-end functionality in the cloud, institutions gain an extra layer of security against growing cyberthreats.
According to a 2017 survey of financial services institutions, only 42 percent of respondents consider their organization effective or very effective at managing cybersecurity risks. Comparatively, 80 percent considered their organization effective or very effective in managing more traditional risk types, including liquidity, underwriting, and credit. Indeed, cybersecurity is the new frontier in risk management.
Cloud computing necessitates that businesses redefine their approach to information security, compliance, data back up, and disaster recovery, but there can be some confusion over what security concerns the cloud may pose for data protection.
