AWS, like every advanced cloud platform, has well-known security flaws that can lead to catastrophic problems if you are not paying careful attention. One of the most dangerous allows innocuous accounts usually granted to developers to be given admin access. Such attacks work because a sequence of seemingly unimportant missteps in configuring different parts of AWS allows the escalation to occur. This webinar will show how these attacks work and how to be diligent about monitoring to make sure such attacks never succeed on your watch.

This webinar will cover:

  • The general nature of escalation attacks
  • How AWS is specifically vulnerable
  • What to do to monitor for mistakes that make these escalation attacks possible
  • How to use Sonrai Security to automate such monitoring
