The number of applications in the cloud is on the rise and with it comes inherent security risks.
Cyber Security Hub’s Cloud Configuration Security Practices survey shows that there is an avalanche of cloud applications coming in the next 12 months and now is the time for organizations to adopt efficient and effective cloud security solutions in order to avoid the business impacts of failed cloud migration and to mitigate breaches resulting from cloud misconfigurations.
The survey shows that the practice of using infrastructure-as-code is well established by most organizations who are using it to provision their cloud services, however, validating the security of infrastructure-as-code is not seeing the same level of adoption to date.
This report outlines why companies need to adapt their cloud security models to be consistent with how public cloud services are provisioned – in code. In addition, the use of automation is key to reducing the growing backlog of security tickets that teams are struggling to close.
Our survey found that some of these security practices are being carried out manually which simply cannot keep up with the pace at which public cloud moves and changes.
Finally, find out what preventative measures should be in place, alongside runtime tools, in order to keep an organization’s data secure from breach caused by cloud misconfigurations.
