Cloud Data Breach

High-growth organizations are incentivized to migrate to public and hybrid cloud environments because of the agility and speed it unlocks.

Cloud
(Mis)management

With the increased adoption of cloud environments across every industry, there has been a corresponding rise in cloud-based data breaches due to cloud infrastructure misconfigurations. AWS alone provides more than 283 discrete services, with a 13% growth Year on Year. Each new service has its own threat model and risk profile, and requires its own security best practices. It is no surprise that organizations are making catastrophic mistakes.

Due to this rate of adoption, Gartner has publicly stated that it expects 95 percent of cloud security failures and data breaches will be the fault of the customer(1), not the cloud provider ( AWS, GCP, Azure, etc). The customer, leveraging the cloud to build their business, is both the perpetrator and the victim.

Without the right security strategy for cloud-native companies, organizations are doomed to repeat the mistakes of companies who exposed the keys to their infrastructure on the internet, or join the numerous organizations that leaked over 100,000 API and cryptographic keys via poor code security practices, leading to a cloud-based data breach incident.(2)

Implementing
Automated Safety
Measures

How a fast-moving organization realizes security and growth objectives:

  • Automated cloud configuration checks
  • Embedded identity and access management controls
  • Continuous vulnerability assessments integrated into every step of the deployment pipeline

A Changing
Infrastructure

Whole industries have adopted new infrastructure practices such as “infrastructure as code” and deployed critical business assets to Kubernetes and serverless infrastructure without the right security team to defend and protect them. Executives are often presented with a false choice of “security vs. speed”. The security industry has a shortage of qualified talent and most off-the-shelf security plans refer to legacy infrastructure and attempt to shoehorn them into a cloud environment. Both these failings can be remedied by developing a relevant, tailor-made, cloud-native security strategy.
