The trends of 4th industrial revolution
Cloud computing is one the latest technological evolution that has revolutionized business processes in an organization. Cloud computing involves providing computing services like servers, databases, software, analytics and storage space among other over the internet.
In the current business world, cloud computing is being referred as new normal as every business is moving their operations to the cloud. Currently, businesses are yearning for a secure flexible business environment, reduced operational cost, adoption of latest technologies and harness efficiency in order to improve customer service delivery.
Moving a business to cloud helps it achieve the following benefits:
Benefits of moving businesses to the cloud
Cloud computing removes hardware and software capital expenses, setup and configuration expenses and office infrastructure which helps a business channel the resources to other vital business projects.
On site data centers and IT infrastructures means that IT experts spend majority of their time “racking and stacking”. Use of cloud computing eliminates these intensive activities and this translates to few IT employees are needed and the available employees focus on more important issues.
At times, businesses need to scale up or down depending on their business strategy. Moving or expanding on-premise facilities like email servers is very resource and time intensive. Scaling services in the cloud is very simple as it only involves subscribing or unsubscribing to a particular service.
Despite these benefits, security is the major setback in the success of cloud services. Current security measures set aside when protecting sending files by emails, storage applications like Dropbox and firewall configurations are not strong enough to prevent latest strategies by intruders.

Information rights management (IRM) is a discipline that involves managing, controlling and securing content from unwanted access. IRM is a subset of digital rights management (DRM), which protects multimedia content, including video and music. While DRM focuses on protecting intellectual property from patent infringement and piracy, IRM focuses on protecting sensitive data, especially data that is exchanged with parties outside an organization (suppliers and partners)
For example, a hospital may apply IRM to patient records in order to maintain compliance with HIPAA-HITECH and prevent access to this information in the event that the patient records fall into unauthorized hands. The Bank can use IRM to protect confidential document while sharing with outside customers/partners. And another example would be when an organization applies IRM to executive communication to protect sensitive information from leaking to the media or to competitors.
IRM generally encrypts files in order to enforce access policies. Once encrypted, additional IRM rules can be applied to a document to allow/deny specific activities. In some cases, this means a document can only be viewed and the user cannot copy/paste the content within the document. In other cases, the IRM rule may prevent a user from taking screenshots of the document, printing, or editing it.
Organizations can create and apply custom IRM rules at enterprise level, department level, group level, or user level based on data security, compliance and governance requirements.
