Orphaned Accounts & * Permissions: A Cloud Security Horror Story
Eric Kedrosky & Nathan Schmidt
About this talk
Everyone enjoys a good scare, but there’s nothing more frightening than the risks that are lurking in your cloud! Effective permission chaining, orphaned accounts, unrestricted data movement, platform misconfigurations; these issues and more are still plaguing companies despite countless examples of cloud data breaches that should have been a wake up call to us all.
More than a decade into cloud security, even the most advanced companies are struggling with basic security risk in the cloud. Some don’t know where the problems lie, and others don’t have the right tools to remediate new security and compliance risks. Approaches from the on-prem world, like traditional IAM, don’t cut it anymore. Teams need new methods for managing data, identity and cloud platform risks.
Join Eric Kedrosky, CISO and Director of Cloud Research at Sonrai Security and Nathan Schmidt, Principal Security Architect at Sonrai Security for this haunting exploration of the “Tales from the Field”, an event focused on the first hand account of security risks that have bedeviled companies in the public cloud.
Attendees will learn:
* How the complexity of the cloud created new security risks that we’re failing to address
* Examples of recent cloud data breaches & the causes that might be hiding in your cloud
* The best practices teams can adopt to avoid identity, data and platform risks and put these ghouls to rest, once and for all
