First of all, to explain what cloud hosting is, the “cloud” refers to a network of computers interconnected to provide system resources on-demand, such as data storage and computing power. The computers, or servers, which make up the cloud reside in data centers which can be located throughout the world. Users access the cloud network using the internet, and are presented with a virtual dashboard to navigate infrastructure and to perform desired tasks. Often, when the cloud consists of a large enough volume of geographically redundant computers, tasks can be distributed between them to more efficiently use computing power.

Regardless of which service model an enterprise employs from a cloud provider, what remains prominent is that there are shared responsibilities of cloud security. The burden of maintaining secure infrastructure does not solely lie on the client or the provider, but is instead distributed between the two. Statistics Canada reports the number of police reported cyber crimes increased 164% between 2016 and 2020. Furthermore, the introduction of Bill C-26, which makes reporting cyber attacks mandatory, was in large part because many incidents were going unreported. Therefore, even though the publicly known number of cyber threats is significant, the actual number is even larger. Considering cyber attacks are increasingly becoming more common, now, more than ever, the integrity of the relationship between clients and their cloud provider is critical to success.
