Better Understanding Cloud Security Risks Through ‘Context’
In just a few years, cloud conversations have gone from theoretical to critical. And with migrations to the cloud ongoing, many enterprises have had to rethink their security approach. In these environments, some practitioners are charged with expending resources to mitigate “high-severity” CVEs – regardless of how a vulnerability may interact with that IT environment. This risk may pale in comparison, for example, to a malware occurrence at the edge that goes unchecked.

A potential lack of visibility into apps, users and network traffic, coupled with alert fatigue, means practitioners may need a clearer view of their environment – before low-and-slow network reconnaissance leads to a potential crypto-locking nightmare. As enterprises mature in the cloud and their technology stacks grow – it becomes increasingly important to quickly detect and respond to vulnerabilities, malware and compromised assets. Network defenders, then, must use “contextual risk” factors to determine their next action items.

Join ISMG’s Tom Field for a moderated discussion that will draw from the experience of the attendees, offering key insights around risk assessment, cloud security, critical assets, and more.

Discussion topics will includes:

  • Is your organization currently cloud-first, still moving to the cloud, or still on-premises, perhaps with plans to migrate?
  • How comfortable are you in assessing risk or detecting vulnerabilities in your environment with potentially devastating consequences?
  • How intertwined are cloud security practices and instances of ransomware, shadow IT or other concerns?
  • Where do you see the state of cloud security in the near- and long-terms? And how will your enterprise evolve?
