Migrating all of a company's data to the cloud comes with its fair share of challenges.

In fact, a 2015 MeriTalk survey of 150 federal executives reveals that 57 percent of these professionals are worried about migration challenges, even suggesting that they’re not sure the data can be moved at all. Even though moving data to the cloud may seem like a daunting task, it is one that can be done with a little bit of planning.

"A prime concern for businesses with cloud migration is that they will relinquish control of that data – and that their critical information will be more susceptible to security breaches. As with Target, Home Depot and other high-profile hacks taking place in recent months, data security in the cloud is a continual concern. However, a recent research report from the Information Security Group shows that insider threats are a significant reason for breaches, and a combination of factors are at play – including insufficient data protection strategies, sensitive data being moved beyond the firewall on mobile devices, and a lack of employee training and awareness. The cloud offers significant advantages that can completely transform the business positively in terms of speed, cost efficiencies and growth – and to fully realize its benefits, businesses must set up the right policies and security technologies to minimize the concerns and dangers when it comes to safeguarding their data."
