Seven Steps for Migrating Data to the Cloud

Migrating data to the cloud doesn’t happen overnight, nor does it happen in a vacuum — it requires a careful planning process to ensure all systems work as they should. That includes a system for protecting sensitive data.

Failing to plan for data security and access control in the cloud migration process could put you at risk for exposing confidential personal and corporate information. Network and perimeter controls that work for on-prem environments are often not suited for the cloud’s scale and agility, and traditional manual processes delay speed to data access. As a result, you may struggle to realize the full value of your cloud investments.

But migrating data to the cloud doesn’t have to be a challenge when data security is built into your migration plan.

This TDWI checklist, sponsored by Immuta, covers specific ways you can migrate sensitive data to the cloud, including:

  • Developing a taxonomy for sensitive data and implementing automated processes to classify new and existing data
  • Defining permitted use cases and applying fine-grained access controls accordingly
  • Creating a data security strategy that works with your cloud platform(s)
  • Scaling your data protection strategy and managing data compliance
