The advantages to putting data and workloads in cloud-based servers, rather than on-premise ones, are significant.
There are financial benefits, such as scaling resources up and down as needed, efficiency advantages, like global access and collaboration, and automation capabilities, like allowing you to offer services which would otherwise not be viable.

This is also true with the public cloud.
However, with the public cloud comes the lack of physical protection that on-premise storage is capable of. Rather than a server that’s locked in a cage or room, inside a building with other security measures, an attacker only needs to gain access to an open cloud resource, which they can do systematically using automation.
