You need to apply consistent security configurations across workloads and applications, and ensure compliance with regulatory and audit requirements.
The Forrester report, Best Practices: Cloud Data Encryption, provides clear guidance on cloud data encryption options and shares best practices, such as:

Use a centralized HSM infrastructure to manage the encryption keys used across your cloud environments
Rotate your keys regularly to ensure alignment with compliance mandates and auditor expectations
