Sponsor Session: Cloud Security Challenges: Getting Your Configuration Right
Cloud adoption has created challenges for enterprises, including third-party risks, breaches caused by cloud misconfigurations and excessive permissions to access data. Traditional enterprise cloud architectures have paved the way for hybrid enterprise architectures, which have led to new security challenges for organizations that have mission-critical applications running on the cloud. While securing the endpoints, deploying third-party access controls and carrying out data governance and management have become Herculean tasks, the biggest challenge is avoiding configuration mistakes in the cloud. Too many organizations fail to secure their workloads in a cloud environment.
The session explains:
- How to check for misconfiguration of cloud apps and the unusual behavior on cloud apps;
- How to check for overly permissive access to hosts, containers and virtual machines;
- Reviewing logs and flagging off security-related events in the cloud.
