Exposed in the Cloud: Agility Comes With Risk

Presented by

Jim Wachhaus, Director of Technical Product Marketing, CyCognito

About this talk

According to Gartner, spending on shadow IT can exceed 40% of the formal IT spend. That’s probably not too surprising for those of us leveraging the cloud to move quickly. But it means that enterprise IT and security teams often don't know where all of their organization’s digital infrastructure and assets are, or whether they’re fully protected. Meanwhile, attackers are constantly looking for the path of least resistance into your organization. They probe your attack surface hoping to find any oversight they can leverage to break into your high-value digital assets, steal your critical data, or freeze your digital business operations in exchange for a bitcoin ransom payment. To stay ahead, organizations need ongoing, comprehensive visibility across the attack surface of their entire IT ecosystem, whether assets are on premises, in the cloud, at subsidiaries or in partner networks. Join Jim Wachhaus as he discusses why attack surface visibility is a “must have” to manage and reduce digital risk in the cloud, and in general.
