Location

Pre-Recorded

Description

Since its initial growth in the late 1990s, Cloud technology has gained widespread traction as the future of IT Modernization. Cloud services utilize the internet rather than a local device to regulate services and programs. External vendors maintain these online servers and software platforms in return for a cost. A noteworthy phenomenon with the rising popularity and use of Cloud-based platforms is the parallel surge of modern-day data attacks. As an evolving and widely-used technology, my research explains whether (if) Cloud Adoption (adopting to Cloud technology) contributes to an increase in digital vulnerabilities and attacks. Upon reviewing the development and evolution of the Cloud, weaknesses and security consequences of Cloud Systems, and case studies of Cloud Adoption, a general trend suggests that malicious online players take advantage of low user knowledge of utilizing and securing Cloud systems to facilitate attacks. A significant portion of security breaches on online platforms originates from user error rather than service error. Overall, this specific line of technological inquiry was selected given the rise of modern-day cybercrime. With the growth of the online domain, my research underscores the relationship between cyber-crime and the advancement of the internet and cutting-edge technological developments.
