Managing your company’s data can be a tall task for any business, and every business will have a system that is owned and operated by a third party provider. Many choose to utilize a third party storage system for storing their data and assets. One of the more prominent examples of this is the cloud. It is becoming increasingly common for businesses to explore the option of moving their storage from a traditional server structure to a cloud-based model. The Department of Labor’s (DOL) best security practices for ESOPs recommend performing security reviews of the data you have stored on the cloud. While conducting a timely security review for the cloud is important, it’s critical to conduct these reviews for any third party IT structure you house data on. Better than safe than sorry.
