2023 State of Cloud Permissions Risks: What You Need to Know
The Growing Need for Cloud Security
The cloud offers organizations of all sizes the opportunity to access a wide range of services, from storage and computing power to collaboration tools and analytics. Unfortunately, this increased access to cloud resources also means organizations must be more vigilant about protecting their data and applications.

The 2023 State of Cloud Permissions Risks report, published by Microsoft Entra Azure AD, provides insight into the current state of cloud security and the steps organizations must take to protect their data and applications.

Key Findings
The 2023 State of Cloud Permissions Risks report provides insight into the current state of cloud security, including the following key findings:

* Organizations must focus on securing access to cloud services, including implementing multi-factor authentication, monitoring access privileges, and strictly enforcing identity and access management policies.
* Mobile devices are increasingly used to access cloud services, and organizations must ensure that mobile security policies are regularly updated.
* Organizations are increasingly using cloud-based tools to manage permissions and access. However, these tools must be regularly monitored to ensure they remain secure.
