“One single vulnerability is all an attacker needs.”- Window Snyder
The event planning data assets have transcended time zones and geographies. Event organizers working from home desks are hence zeroing in on not only integrations but anytime, anywhere, on any device usability. Speed of data sharing is demanded as a given. But the security of the boatloads of event files, attendee accounts facts & figures and event contracts top the concern list of global event management companies. With headlines like the $600 million crypto heist of Ronin Network, the portal that supported the famous mobile game Axie Infinity, making news, organizations are still very wary of moving into the Cloud. Imagine putting all the trade secrets of your event’s success, your operational genius and your financial sheets in somebody else’s hands!
Here’s All About Cloud Storage for Dummies!
The world at large has its photos and videos uploaded on the free, limited cloud storage of Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive.
Cloud Storage can be simply put as digital data storage. Big businesses and enterprises either purchase or lease the non-free ample cloud storage server space on hosting and deployment gateways like Oracle Cloud Storage, Amazon S3 and more. For an event industry professional, this may mean those bereft of VPN access can also upload, access, edit and comment on shared event documents in one place, quicker! For an event industry external client or vendor, it could mean they can scan through event marketing flyers and graphics without editing access. And without any incessant back and forth!
The cloud bolters event management with a standardized folder system that has ‘tags’ - that string along for a faster search. In the Cloud, you can edit and save spreadsheet updates in real-time. The Version 1, Version 2 approach is out! And the event creators have to no longer fret over their organization’s hardware failure, as something you put out there in the Cloud always has a backup!!
But Does Cloud Storage Security Fortress?
Most often, we are the reason for our business hacking tragedies. We use the same passwords everywhere, leaving easy identity theft loopholes; we log in to untrustworthy sites that are security compromised. Unfortunately, even Cloud doesn’t provide us with that 100% guarantee that malicious attackers and competitors are not snooping on our private event planning files. So, even though we know that Cloud is better and more cost-effective than the company hard drives, we continue playing the ‘To Store or Not to Store’ game without a solution in sight. But the solution there is! Your event data and cloud storage can be as secure as a fortress if you utilize these tips and tricks to your advantage…
Cloud Storage Security is yours!
