This presentation will discuss how reliance on cloud services and traditional hardening practices leads to increased successful attacks. We’ll look at how even non-APT attackers now invest more time and effort into creating custom malware, and we’ll discuss the solution to how companies can adjust their security posture to address cloud environments’ continuously changing threat landscape. The flexibility and low cost have made transiting workloads to the cloud increasingly attractive to companies. However, migration to the cloud brings new challenges, from new vulnerabilities to a constantly changing attack surface. With news stories on breaches becoming a daily occurrence, it’s easy to understand why cloud security has become a critical issue.
