The past 12 months have been a year of shocking cloud security data breaches – shocking, in that they were preceded by a year of high-profile preventable breaches … which were preceded by a previous year of preventable breaches, which… well, you get the point.
Gartner recently updated their evaluation of cloud security and concluded “Through 2025, 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” Why are well-informed, experienced cloud security experts getting hit with breach after breach, when cautionary examples are right in front of them?
The answer is: it’s a complicated, hard job, growing more complex with every new cloud service and an ever-expanding multi-cloud footprint. You can’t prevent every bad thing from happening at once. Keeping up to date with the most common (and the most interesting) data breach paths and how to secure them is key when it comes to defending your identities and data access.
Let’s get up to date on the latest breach tactics. (Un)luckily we have an abundance of examples to dissect from 2021. Join Eric Kedrosky, CISO and Director of Cloud Research at Sonrai Security, as he breaks down the anatomy of 2021’s most notorious cloud data breaches and how they could’ve been avoided.
We’ll hit topics like:
- AWS and Azure cloud misconfigurations
- Key and secret management
- Overprivileged identities
- Malicious Bad Actors
- And more.
