The acceleration of digitalization trends in various economic sectors, including in the operational activities of companies, has created a shift in the company's work system to a hybrid workforce or remote work. The increasing trend of digitization in operational activities, especially the adoption of digital technology in work patterns, is also considered to have an effect on increasing the company's cybersecurity risk.

Cyber crimes are increasing and threaten the tools used in the work environment such as video conferencing applications, conference calls, and virtual transfers. The risk to businesses of this threat is compounded by security loopholes that workers are not aware of because they have to work remotely.

Companies now have to be careful about using the cloud and choose a service provider that has a reliable system. In addition, companies also need to consider other aspects before choosing a cloud service provider, for example by choosing a service provider that already has the certification.

While the existence of cloud computing itself, although it brings many new cybersecurity threats, it cannot be denied that it also brings many benefits to business management because with cloud computing, companies can reduce complexity and reduce costs. Cloud computing is also said to have advantages when compared to physical infrastructure which requires a greater investment of time and cost.

For this reason, companies also need to consider other aspects before choosing a cloud service provider, for example by choosing a service provider that already has the certification.
