Cloud security is the collective set of strategies and measures to control, protect, and ensure the safety of data, applications, and infrastructure within cloud computing environments. It encompasses:

1. Data Protection: Shielding data from unauthorized access.
2. IAM: Managing authorized access to cloud resources.
3. Threat Prevention: Detecting and mitigating threats.
4. Application Security: Guarding cloud-based applications.
5. Encryption: Encrypting data for added safety.
6. Physical Security: Securing the cloud service providers' infrastructure.
7. Compliance: Meeting data protection and privacy standards.
8. Network Security: Safeguarding network infrastructure and data transit.
9. Endpoint Security: Protecting access points like devices accessing the cloud.

In cloud security, both the cloud provider and customer share the responsibility for different aspects of security.
