API vulnerabilities can pose a significant risk to cloud data security as they are used to connect cloud applications, data, and infrastructure. The common issues that cause data breaches are weak authentication and authorization controls, insufficient sandbox protection, and too many privileges.
When migrating data to the cloud, it is crucial for organizations to thoroughly assess these vulnerabilities and implement robust security measures to mitigate these risks.
Additionally, meeting security compliance requirements can be particularly challenging, especially if the cloud provider does not meet these requirements. Organizations should carefully evaluate the regulatory landscape and ensure that their cloud provider can meet their specific compliance needs.
Check your service provider's security and compliance certifications to ensure that the provider has a robust data strategy in place to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility of your data.
