Leaky Buckets: Effective Encryption Techniques to Secure AWS S3 Buckets

Presented by

Jermaine Ashman, Senior Sales Engineer, Thales

About this talk

Several of the most well-known data breaches have involved unsecured Amazon Simple Storage (S3) buckets that resulted in millions of customer data records be exposed. In most cases the main culprit was human error: Administrators who improperly configured the security settings. While cloud native encryption and key management can be used, these options are mostly “just good enough security” and do not follow best practices for encryption and key management. Using third party encryption and key management solutions give users total control over the security of sensitive data in the cloud. For cloud and security teams, understanding the most effective encryption technology available for securing data in AWS can help them make them make the right choices. In this webinar, you will learn about a more secure approach for protecting sensitive data in AWS S3 buckets using Vormetric Transparent Encryption (VTE). Key topics in this webinar will be: • Causes of misconfigured permissions to AWS S3 buckets • What happens if an S3 bucket is intentionally or unintentionally exposed • Why Bring Your Own Encryption is better than cloud native encryption • The specific techniques VTE offers to provide a more effective encryption mechanism to secure sensitive data in AWS S3 buckets
