There are many standards that have emerged, but there are no guidelines which is the best or most important. Depending on the hardware and technology backbone. It’s good to understand the core security service backbone, because not all providers are not the same.
- Cloud provider is responsible for the security of my data
It’s your responsibility, with provider have basic infrastructure to ensure that, the best way is to also bring you own security, where you can have better control and administration.
