Enterprise Cloud Security: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
Michael Osterman, President of Osterman Research & Eric Kedrosky, CISO and Director of Cloud Research
About this talk
The Osterman Research white paper, "The State of Enterprise Cloud Security: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly,” highlighted both the criticality and the challenges of security public clouds. Backed by Sonrai Security, the new cloud security research clearly illustrates the key contributors to cloud breaches -- many related to identity security, data security, misconfiguration, and executive strategy.
We welcome back Michael Osterman, industry analyst and president of Osterman Research, and Eric Kedrosky, CISO and Director of Cloud Research for a 45-minute review of the State of Enterprise Cloud Security.
Join our webinar on April 20 at 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT to get a firsthand view of research-based insights on the cloud security, identity risk, data challenges, and executive response posed by today’s complex cloud environments.
Our experts and researchers will have an honest conversation about the state of enterprise cloud security. We will talk about the obvious risks and uncover some new challenges, including:
- Overprivileged Identities: Identities with significantly more privileges and access than are required to carry out the duties assigned to them introduces a significant risk to the cloud.
- Human Error: Human mistakes will happen and will not be deliberate at times, but these errors can still wreak havoc in an organization.
- Unauthorized Access: Due to the complex nature of cloud environments, having visibility into which identities have access to data and resources is increasingly difficult. Organizations need to secure all crown jewel data and enforce policies to prevent unauthorized access to the cloud environment.
- Executive Support & Spend: Our survey reveals spend and full-time resources dedicated to securing data, identities, and platforms. We uncovered big areas of executive risk in organizations' cloud strategy.
