8 tips to protect your information in the Cloud

When it comes to data storage, whether personal or professional, choosing secure solutions is a priority. The Cloud has proven to be a secure cyberspace for storing private information such as professional files, personal information, health documentation, family photos, and videos. However, for those who heavily rely on Cloud storage, there are security risks in the Cloud.

To better help control the security of your Cloud network, here are some tips on how to make it more secure:

1. Strong and unique passwords

Use strong and unique passwords for your Cloud accounts. Avoid using the same password for multiple accounts and consider using a password manager to securely store and manage passwords.

2. Enable two-factor authentication (2FA)

Enable 2FA whenever possible. This adds an extra layer of security by requiring a second form of verification, such as a code sent to your mobile device, in addition to your password.

3. Be cautious of email and phishing attacks

Be vigilant about emails or messages, including SMS or WhatsApp, especially those requesting personal or account information. Avoid clicking on suspicious links or downloading attachments from unknown sources.

4. Regularly update your devices

Keep your devices, including computers, smartphones, and tablets, up to date with the latest security patches and software updates. These updates often include security fixes for known vulnerabilities.

5. Use encryption for data

When storing or transferring confidential data to the Cloud, consider using encryption. Encryption adds an extra layer of protection by encoding the data in a way that can only be decrypted with the correct encryption key.

6. Regularly check account activity

Pay attention to the activity of your Cloud account and review login history and access logs provided by the Cloud service provider. If you notice any suspicious activity, report it immediately to the provider.

7. Use secure networks

Be cautious when accessing Cloud services from public Wi-Fi networks. Ideally, use a trusted and secure network or consider using a virtual private network (VPN) to encrypt the internet connection and protect your data.

8. Stay informed

Stay updated on best practices for Cloud security and familiarize yourself with the specific security features and settings provided by your Cloud service provider. Understanding how to effectively use available security features can help protect your data.


Remember that Cloud security is a shared responsibility between the Cloud service provider and the user. By following these tips, you will actively contribute to making the Cloud environment secure for your personal data.
