- [Voiceover] Organizations use cloud services…for a wide variety of data storage needs.…These cloud services offer tremendous flexibility…and cost effectiveness, but also come with…security concerns that administrators must address.…The basic principle that organizations should follow…is that you should apply the same security controls…to data stored in the cloud as you would…data stored in your own data center.…If you'd encrypt information in your own data center,…you should encrypt it in the cloud.…If you'd restrict access in your own data center,…you should restrict it in the cloud.…
