Security for Cloud-stored Data for Energy & Utilities

Robust data security in the cloud enables energy and utility services to provide efficiency, scalability, flexibility, data analysis, availability, and real-time reporting.

Energy and utilities have become core areas where cloud technology is vital. It is used for infrastructure monitoring, optimizing complex operations, forecasting supply and demand of specific areas, and incorporating evolving energy sector trends.

However, as the cloud size increases, so do the attack surfaces. Cloud-stored data can be targetted by attacks, resulting in data loss, breaches, or even critical infrastructure failures. This necessitates strong cloud data security in the energy and utilities sector.

Cloud data security can be achieved through a variety of solutions that allow users to control and monitor sensitive data entirely or partially while it is at rest or in motion.
