5 Steps to Prevent AWS Data Exposures

Presented by

Brandon Cook and Anant Mahajan of Skyhigh

About this talk

Amazon Web Services has strong security features, but customer misconfigurations have led to a series of very public data exposures over the last few months from Verizon, Dow Jones, Accenture, and Patient Home Monitoring. And now, we are seeing different misconfigurations leading to a new AWS exposure, dubbed GhostWriter, whereby third parties can alter content in S3 buckets, enabling bad actors to use the exposure to conduct MITM phishing and malware attacks. In this webinar, we will outline the proven steps you can take to prevent AWS data exposures, including a Skyhigh Security Cloud demo of: •Auditing AWS to identify and correct unsecure/noncompliant configurations •Preventing employee access to 3rd party GhostWriter-exposed S3 Buckets •Detecting compromised accounts and malicious insiders working with AWS About the speakers: Brandon Cook, VP, Marketing Brandon Cook leads the product marketing team at Skyhigh Networks and has over a decade of experience in the tech industry identifying and developing new markets.
