According to Information Age, a Trend Micro report showed that the COVID-19 pandemic led to an increased spending on cloud migration by 88% of health care organizations across the globe. More specifically, 43% spent more on paying for contracted out services and capital expenses and 39% on training and operational costs. Thirty-four percent of surveyed companies cited setting and maintaining policies as one of the workload challenges they faced when they migrated to the cloud, while 32% each stated misconfigurations and patching and vulnerability management. The report also noted that 43% of respondents said that the lack of skills hindered their efforts to migrate to cloud security solutions, while 40% have expressed confidence over securing their part of the Shared Responsibility Model. “Security is another aspect of building well, not a separate function. And security controls help teams build better in the cloud," said Mark Nunnikhoven, Trend Micro's vice president of cloud research. He added that security “can be an accelerator for building in the cloud. Using the right tools and understanding the platforms you’re using is key to making that happen."
