If you are using cloud, then most likely you have started your journey with a SaaS-based offering. SaaS, or Software-as-a-Service, is a cloud-based software usually built on a shared infrastructure sold to end users using a monthly charge. Most companies start their journey with things like Office 365, Salesforce.com and even Dropbox for business. All of these are SaaS-based applications.
If you are using any of these, then from a cybersecurity perspective, it’s absolutely critical that you understand the term “shared responsibility”. What this means is that the responsibility for the security of your SaaS-based data is shared between your company and the cloud SaaS provider.
