Data Protection and Privacy Compliance in the Cloud: Privacy Concerns Are Not Slowing the Adoption of Cloud Services, but Challenges Remain

The survey of over 1,000 IT professionals in the US and EU found that privacy concerns are not slowing cloud adoption and that most privacy-related activities are easier in the cloud, while at the same time, most organizations don’t feel they have control and visibility they need to manage online privacy.  The report lists ten steps organizations can take to improve security and privacy. 

Governing Your Azure Workloads

Common attacks against cloud resources include accessing service endpoints exposed to the Internet, brute forcing weak passwords, re-using stolen credentials, and access to exposed data storage containers.  The root cause leading to the success of these attacks is typically misconfigurations in the deployment and operation of cloud workloads.  Although public clouds present unique challenges to security teams, Azure comes with several tools that can help prevent such attacks from occurring.

Resilience in Azure whitepaper

Azure is a rapidly growing cloud computing platform that provides an ever-expanding suite of cloud services. These include analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web services. Azure integrates tools, templates, and managed services that work together to help make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, web, and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, using the tools, applications, and frameworks that customers choose. Azure is built on trust. The Azure approach to trust is based on the five foundational principles - Security, Compliance, Privacy, Resilience and Intellectual Property (IP) protection. A well-designed Azure application should focus on the five pillars of software quality.

Making PCI compliance easier with Azure SQL Database

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is designed to prevent fraud using credit card information through increased controls around credit card data. Obtaining PCI DSS compliance is a requirement for all organizations that accept credit card payments, process credit card transactions or transmit or store credit card data. For organizations that have their own data centers, it can be a time consuming and costly process to become PCI compliant. Many organizations are not able to take on the responsibility of building a PCI-compliant environment and handle the daily responsibilities that come with being PCI compliant. Migrating to or building those environments in Microsoft Azure can drastically reduce the PCI-compliance responsibility that an organization must bear. The intent of this paper is to showcase how much easier PCI DSS compliance is to achieve when customers take advantage of Azure SQL Database.
