About this talk

Utilizing data pulled from our global array of sensors, our elite cloud threat researchers found a correlation: Organizations globally increased their cloud workloads by more than 20%, leading to an explosion of security incidents. Our research shows that cloud security programs for organizations globally are still in their infancy when it comes to security automation (i.e., DevSecOps and shift left).
