Cloud Security Survey: 2017 Report

For the third year in a row, a comprehensive survey was conducted with the 350,000+ members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community on the state of cloud security. Cloud investment continues to grow over 20% annually as organizations are looking for faster time to deployment, scalability, reduced maintenance, and lower cost. But there is one aspect of cloud that consistently worries IT and security professionals – how to achieve high levels of security in the cloud. 

This year's survey results explores many topics, including:

  • Cloud adoption barriers, benefits, and trends.
  • Cloud security risks, compliance concerns, and tool usage.
  • Cloud confidence builders, effective solutions, and paths to stronger security.
... and more.
