Can Security & Cloud Go Hand-In-Hand For Utilities?

Can Security & Cloud Go Hand-In-Hand For Utilities?

Utilities have much to gain from cloud adoption – better data management, enhanced decisions, quicker customer resolutions, streamlined work force and an overall robust ecosystem. But a whopping 85% of respondents from a recent survey mentioned security as a major concern. This concern gains more prominence owing to the complexity of utility networks, remote work setups and an ever-evolving threat landscape. 

Then there are regulatory barriers which are also necessary to be implemented to ensure security of customers’ personally identifiable information, data and transactions. Employees’ data needs to be secured too. That’s a lot to take care of, but we are here to help.sept

A robust cloud offering which is agile, secure and compliant is the solution. A good solution which is built on the back of global security standards like ISO 9001, SOC 1/ISAE 3402 & PCI DSS Level 1 and compliance controls should provide answers to many of the pressing questions concerning security. Data is also completely protected when the solution is hosted on AWS which helps with encryption, endpoint security, threat detection and access controls. Data privacy protection features, vulnerability management capabilities and incident management controls come together to ensure smooth, secure operations for Utilities as they embark on the much-needed cloud journey. Cyber security threats can be monitored in real time to provide relevant alerts and suggest fixes to prevent attacks from happening in the present as well as the future. Such systems also ensure that data is not only monitored continuously but also made available to only the intended parties through rules and access controls. 

So, cloud adoption can definitely be secure. We would be happy to guide you.
