In recent years, cloud-based data storage has taken the world by storm. N. Jude Nwosu, Chief Technology Officer of Chamco Digital says “Cloud technology is really the future of technology, and the future is now. Everything is being dominated by the cloud and rightly so.”
Cloud-based data storage is for most people and many companies the preferred way to store and collect any data that they use in their work. From photos and videos to documents and confidential information, cloud-based data storage is the most accessible and secure way to store your data.
“Storing data in the cloud guarantees that the data is always available. Even if the equipment like a laptop or computer is broken or damaged,” says N. Jude Nwosu. This method of storage provides easy access to the user without compromising the safety of the data.
When thinking about switching to cloud-based data solutions, it can be easy to be concerned about security. However, according to N. Jude Nwosu, “if you are reliant on traditional on-premises data storage, which can really be affected by natural disasters such as earthquakes and fires, in these situations, the data is lost. But if you put up the data in the cloud, no matter what the situation is, the data can be retrieved from any location.”
Jude Nwosu says, “Worrying about data stored in the cloud is very important just to ensure that people’s private information is not compromised.” This is why Chamco Digital has emphasized the security aspects of cloud-based data storage.
Some of the policies that N. Jude Nwosu and his colleagues at Chamco Digital have implemented to help them achieve the goal of secure cloud-based data storage include creating a cloud-based governance system to secure the data and implementing policies within that system.
According to N. Jude Nwosu, “Having a solid cloud governance structure, you establish a set of security standards and baselines, prior to migrating from on-premises to the cloud, or from one cloud to the other.”
This then leads to the development of security policies and protocols within the cloud platform that can aid in the protection of the client’s data. “So, you create policies, basically, in your cloud platform using Identity and Access Management, that establishes who has access to what,” says N. Jude Nwosu.
One of the most notable security protocols that are usually implemented is the multi-factor authentication system.
“You have to establish a multi-factor authentication system, which assures that whoever has access or whoever is trying to access the system during the cloud migration, or post cloud migration is actually, who they say they are, and they have authority to do whatever they said they had the authority to do,” says N. Jude Nwosu.
By implementing the cloud technology policies that N. Jude Nwosu and his colleagues at Chamco Digital have set, it is easy to note the importance and benefits of cloud-based storage, thus ensuring that your data is protected and accessible by you or your company whenever you need it and wherever you are.
