|IBM Cloud: Have full control over your data|
In my spare time, I am teaching "Introduction to Data Management" at a cooperative state university. I tell the students that, today, data is the / a core asset of any business. It is a critical resource that needs to be protected and managed with care. Hence, putting data security at the core of platform design is important. The blog "Why a data-first approach is critical to designing and building secure cloud services" gives a great introduction into what needs to be considered for building a secure cloud platform. It touches everything from the isolation and encryption of resources and access control to monitoring, audit and governance. I covered some of the same aspects in my blog "Securing Workloads on IBM Cloud".
That's all for now. I can't wait to give a test drive once it is available. If you have feedback, suggestions, or questions about this post, please reach out to me on Twitter (@data_henrik) or LinkedIn.
