Cloud Security - where are the boundaries of my cloud?

What can I do to secure my cloud…where do I start? How do I define it’s boundaries?

The cloud isn’t just that big data-centre thing you rent CPU cycles from by the hour. It’s on your laptop, phone and tablet as well. So when you think about moving to the cloud, whether it is on-prem, hybrid, private, or shared remember those end user devices!

The other question you should ask is what does the cloud network look like? Is it like a WAN you can buy from BT or is it ‘The Internet’. If you are connecting to a cloud you are using a network; but is this network secure? How does it work? How do you secure it? All good questions to ask and continue to ask as you pursue your cloud journey…
