Securing your cloud environment and ensuring compliance with data protection regulation can become a challenge when you scale up cloud usage. Security teams frequently find that their tried and trusted security policies for on-premises infrastructure are not effective at mitigating the risks of decentralized cloud usage. If risks are not mitigated, misconfigurations could easily occur that expose sensitive cloud data.
Developing effective security policies can be a challenge, especially as cloud environments become more complex. While it is possible to implement standalone configurations that prevent unauthorized access to cloud data, complex violation chains are possible, where a secure configuration is no longer secure when combined with other configurations.
Not only must organizations ensure they correctly configure their cloud infrastructure and secure their data, security policies should not negatively affect productivity. There is a balance that must be achieved that ensures organizations maintain a good security posture while also ensuring there is no adverse effect on productivity.
Achieving that balance can be dificult, but help is at hand. On Tuesday July 7, 2020, The Cloud Security Alliance is hosting a webinar – A Practitioner’s Guide to Cloud Security and Compliance Processes – in which successful strategies for securing the cloud at scale will be shared.
The webinar will cover:
- Common vulnerabilities and threats that increase security and compliance risks
- How to balance governance with the flexibility needed for developer productivity
- Specific steps you can take to measure and improve security posture
- Lessons 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.
