Rapid adoption of cloud during pandemic raises risk of threats — KPMG
The rapid adoption of cloud during Covid-19 spotlights critical need for strategic vision, according to KPMG Management & Risk Consulting Sdn Bhd.
KPMG said with continued lockdowns and restricted movements around the world, businesses took to the cloud to foster remote working environments, continue reaching their customers online and to protect their data.
It said the remarkable acceleration of cloud services adoption during the pandemic is not a temporary trend, and it is vital to ensure that these services are governed and monitored by corporate IT, risk and cybersecurity professionals who understand today’s emerging threats and regulatory requirements.
Head of IT-enabled transformation at KPMG in Malaysia Alvin Gan said cloud investment was considered the third most important technology investment during the onset of Covid-19.
