One of the most common practices following a data breach is initiating ongoing surveillance of potentially impacted customers’ credit and other identity factors. Cloud monitoring could also help businesses affected by these kinds of attacks increase their awareness and prevention tactics going forward.

As Sys-Con stated, it’s important for companies to regularly review their systems, checking for efficiency, latency and total cloud storage usability. In many cases, firms may only be looking for business intelligence readouts or focusing on elements of corporate input that are not directly related to security. However, this is the perfect opportunity for entities to ensure that their solutions are also free of irregularities and properly protected against outside threats.

This promotes more transparency for security as well as business insights of other kinds.

Promoting more cloud monitoring could help improve oversight and enhance planning.
