Data protection in the cloud.
As the world continues on its digitization revolution, the protection of sensitive data (i.e. PII, IP) is becoming a core business requirement. The market for cloud services has matured, and it is being deployed well beyond serving as a utility for storage and servers. LaaS, PaaS, and SaaS solutions enable the business to become more self-sufficient, reducing demand and freeing up additional resources to work on more complex and high-value initiatives.
While compliance and overall security and privacy responsibility cannot be outsourced to cloud service providers, there are scalable and flexible solutions that allow data owners to protect their data while outsourcing the day-to-day operations of their IT environments. KPMG and Microsoft are working together to build an approach that accelerates the customer’s cloud transformation journey using security and compliance as an accelerator and enabler.
