Unprotected Files on a Public Cloud Server: Live Panel on the NSA Data Leak

Public, private and hybrid cloud are nothing new, but protecting sensitive data stored on these servers is still of the utmost concern. The NSA is no exception.

It recently became publicized that the contents of a highly sensitive hard drive belonging to the NSA (National Security Agency) were compromised. The virtual disk containing the sensitive data came from an Army Intelligence project and was left on a public AWS (Amazon Web Services) storage server, not password-protected.

This is one of at least 5 other leaks of NSA-related data in recent years. Not to mention the significant number of breaches and hacks we’ve experienced lately, including Yahoo!, Equifax, WannaCry, Petya, and more.

The culprit in this case? Unprotected storage buckets. They have played a part in multiple other recent exposures, and concern is on the rise. When it comes to storing data on public cloud servers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace and more, what are the key responsibilities of Storage Architects and Engineers, CIOs and CTOs to avoid these types data leaks?

Tune in with Chris Vickery, Director of Cyber Risk Research at UpGuard and the one who discovered the leak, along with George Crump, Chief Steward, Storage Switzerland, David Linthicum, Cloud Computing Visionary, Author & Speaker, Charles Goldberg, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, Thales e-Security, and Mark Carlson, Co-Chair, SNIA Technical Council & Cloud Storage Initiative, for a live panel discussion on this ever-important topics.

  • Three Reasons Why NAS is No Good for AI and Machine Learning Jul 19 2018 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Storage Switzerland, WekaIO
    Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are becoming mainstream initiatives at many organizations. Data is at the heart of AI and ML. Immediate access to large data sets is pivotal to successful ML outcomes. Without data, there is no learning. The goal of AI and ML is to try to simulate human thinking and understanding. AI and ML initiatives cannot however be realized unless the data processing layer has immediate access to, and a constant supply of, data.
