Cloud gives you flexibility, scalability and agility.
But how do you secure your processes?
Understanding cloud-specific requirements allows you to plan, design, implement and run your cybersecurity program efficiently. With cloud, critical data is stored and processed in different environments, often from different providers. Users access data and applications from everywhere, at any time, from various device types. These technological advances change how we deal with cybersecurity. We need to adapt to a more diversified environment. Cloud security is about efficiently orchestrating and automating events, to enable quick detection of and response to cybersecurity incidents. It is about eliminating complexity, it is about agility and flexibility.
Three cloud security challenges
Every organization adopts cloud differently and has a different risk appetite. Most of them need to deal with three challenges:
Manage & control cloud security
Protect data, identities & applications
Manage the multi-cloud complexity
As digital transformation drives organisations to adopt and include cloud infrastructure into their core business, the attack surface changes as well, leaving different attack vectors available for exploitation by attackers. As the saying goes, “the cloud is just someone else’s computer” falls somewhat short of describing the environment and its associated risks.
A cloud security assessment in many ways has parallels to a traditional infrastructure assessment. While the manifestation of risk’s may be different, threats such as credential disclosure facilitating lateral movement and privilege escalation is as realistic on cloud infrastructure as it is on self-hosted infrastructure, with some nuance.View Brochure
