More and more organizations are moving to the cloud. For most small and medium businesses, the cloud can provide better security and reliability than can be provided by on premise solutions. That's not to say that everybody should shift to cloud services. Having data access and control in your own hands is certainly a better security model than giving over the encryption keys to a third party provider.
How do you assess whether a cloud provider is "worthy" of controlling your data? Wouldn't a top 5 vendor-neutral security certifications list give you a good idea of those you should consider? The State of Security has compiled a listing of the top 5 vendor-neutral cloud certifications. They include:
- Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge
- Certified Cloud Security Professional
- Certified Integrator Secure Cloud Services
- CompTIA Cloud+
- Professional Cloud Security Manager
Happy cloud hunting.
