Identifying and fixing security gaps in a cloud architecture may not appear very different from doing the same for on-premises environments. But there are a variety of nuanced differences that can be easy to overlook. If you fail to appreciate and account for them, these misconfigurations can cause security blind spots in your cloud architecture.
Some result from the ephemeral nature of cloud workloads; others are the product of services unique to the cloud, like identity and access management (IAM); or some may result from tooling, such as infrastructure-as-code (IaC).
This guide helps organizations by:
- Identifying the cloud security blind spots that they may be overlooking within their cloud environments.
- Walking through a number of common configuration oversights that affect cloud infrastructures, explaining why they can lead to serious vulnerabilities.
- Offering tips for designing cloud architectures and technology stacks that protect against the risk of misconfiguration
