Many organizations find it difficult to keep their cloud environments secure and compliant with data protection standards as cloud usage grows. While they had effective security processes for their on-premises infrastructure, they do not always translate to the cloud and fail to mitigate risks associated with decentralized cloud usage.
Ensuring security processes are in place that are effective at identifying cloud misconfigurations that could be exploited by threat actors to gain access to cloud data is essential, but if those processes are not implemented, security becomes an impossible task.
One of the problems is that while standalone configurations may be correct, they can combine with other configurations which can potentially allow unauthorized access to sensitive data. These complex violation chains can be difficult to identify and are a common cause of cloud security breaches. Creating security policies to address risks can cause problems, as security policies can easily have an impact on productivity.
The creation of effective security policies that do not negatively affect the organization is a challenge, but one that can be easily overcome by adopting the right strategies.
The Cloud Security Alliance is running a webinar on Tuesday July 7, 2020 to help organizations scale their cloud usage while also improving their security posture. The CSA will be highlighting proven strategies that also empower teams to take full advantage of the agility benefits of the cloud.
The webinar will cover some of the most common security vulnerabilities and threats that increase security and compliance risks, how it is possible to ensure governance while maintaining the flexibility required for developer productivity, explain key steps that can be taken to improve your security posture, and cover lessons that have been learned from scaling these processes to support a growing cloud environment
The Cloud Security Alliance will be joined by Kolby Allen, Senior Architect at Zipwhip, and Jason Needham, Senior Director of Cloud Security at VMware.
