Claranet has called for more focus on the human end of cloud security.

“The cloud security challenges highlighted in this report have little to do with the platform itself, but everything to do with the people using it and, in our experience, people are the biggest weakness here. The major cloud providers like AWS set a lot of sensible defaults designed to support configuration – for example, S3 buckets are now private by default – but unfortunately, it’s straightforward to get things wrong if you don’t know how to use the platform,” he said.
