19 Tips and Best Practices for Protecting and Securing Your Data in The Cloud

As your organization takes steps towards cloud-based functionality, how data is stored, secured, and accessed becomes a top priority. Protecting and securing your data (which can include sensitive information about your company’s finances, trade secrets, methodologies, and more) is essential. Just as important is protecting customer or client data, particularly if your business operates in an industry that commonly handles personally-identifying information. If your company is a retail operation or exists in the realm of healthcare, BFSI, or other public-facing fields, you may routinely handle credit card numbers, social security numbers, or passwords that could permit hackers to access client-side accounts.

Conversational AI, The Secret to More Intelligent Chatbots

While the word “chatbot” only entered the common vernacular in the 1990s (chat + bot), the technology was actually developed in the early 1950s and ‘60s. The idea of computer intelligence was launched with input from innovators like Alan Turing, who first posited that computers could learn and eventually teach themselves, and Joseph Weizenbaum, who created the very first chatbot, ELIZA, a “therapist” program which was capable of recognizing keywords in a conversation and responding in a natural way with a follow-up question.

Those usually require a blend of edge computing and specialized AI. Instead, we’re looking at getting information smoothly from where the work is being done to where business leaders are analyzing processes and trying to solve problems.

The Modern Workplace: Big Data, Machine Learning, and Predictive Analytics

Traditional workforces were mainly human-powered. And human resources are still crucial, to be sure, but business automation is changing many processes and strategies. For instance, in the traditional workplace, there likely would have been one (or more) staff roles dedicated to data entry. With the introduction of big data technology, however, much of that process can be automated, making the human data entry role mostly redundant in some industries. The same can be true for other parts of the business — chatbots for the customer service department, predictive analytics for the financial forecasting team, machine automation for the warehouse department, etc.

The Advantages of Cloud for Canadian Businesses

Approximately 85 percent of enterprises have now adopted a multi-cloud strategy, with 41 percent of workloads being run on the public cloud and 38 percent on the private cloud. The market has spoken: cloud computing is here to stay. All that being said, it may not be clear how cloud computing can directly benefit Canadian businesses. In real terms, this is what the cloud will do for you. The Advantages of Cloud for Canadian Businesses It’s easy – A cloud-based system does not require physical infrastructure. Your business does not have to maintain, upgrade, or update it. Your employees will likely take to it intuitively, as most cloud-based applications are no different from navigating a website. If there’s a system that “just works,” it’s a cloud-based system. It’s secure – Modern cloud computing systems come with best-in-class security solutions. Always-on network monitoring, antivirus software, and DoS mitigation all work together to ensure that your business can continue going without interruption. This is especially important in the era of ransomware and other advanced malicious attacks. Where organizations were once tethered to on-premise deployments to avoid security risks, they are now flocking to more secure, cloud deployments. According to an article by David Linthicum on TechTarget, on-premise environments not only suffer more security incidents than service providers, they suffer more brute-force attacks.
