Businesses are moving to the cloud faster than they’d like to, new reports say, suggesting that with lagging security, trouble comes twice as fast.

However, the majority agrees that security practices aren’t keeping the pace and they fear what might be the consequence.

Cloud Security Alliance Releases New Threat List

Cloud Security Alliance has unveiled its Top Threats to Cloud Computing: Egregious Elevenreport, which lists the top 11 cybersecurity problems facing cloud computing users. It is the first major update to the list since 2016, when Alliance released the Treacherous 12, although it has released reports taking a deep dive into the threats with case studies in the interim.

Data breaches still top the list, unmoved since 2016. Other perennial threats remaining on the list from last time are poor identity management, insecure APIs, account hijacking, insider threats and the abuse and nefarious use of cloud services.

That leaves room for five new threats.

The Cloud Security Alliance found the issues that traditionally plagued cloud service providers aren’t as big of a problem today.

The responsibility for keeping cloud computing platforms safe is falling increasingly on customers rather than cloud service providers, according to a recent survey.

Many of the security issues that traditionally plagued cloud service providers—like denial of service, system vulnerabilities and data loss—are much less of a problem than they have been in years past, according to researchers at the Cloud Security Alliance. Instead, they found that today’s biggest cloud-related threats exploit the organizations that use the platforms, not the companies that built them.
