You should be worried about cloud squatting

Most security issues in the cloud can be traced back to someone doing something stupid. Sorry to be that blunt, but I don’t see ingenious hackers out there. I do see misconfigured cloud resources, such as storage and databases, that lead to vulnerabilities that could easily be avoided. I always teach how your first line of defense is not cool security tools but training. This is often ignored, considering that budgets are directed at new tools rather than teaching admins how not to do dumb things. It is frustrating considering the investment needed versus the value gained. Oh well. To read thi ..read more

Confidential computing in Microsoft Azure gets a boost
InfoWorld » Cloud Security
by
4M ago
One of the biggest challenges facing any enterprise using the public cloud is the fact that it’s public. Yes, your applications run in isolated virtual machines and your data sits in its own virtual storage appliances, but there’s still a risk of data exposure. In a multitenant environment, you can’t be certain that memory is freed up safely, so that your data isn’t leaking across the boundaries between your systems and others. That’s why businesses keep close watch on their regulatory compliance, and often keep sensitive data on premises. That allows them to feel sure that they’re managing pe ..read more

It’s been over 10 years since Shannon Lietz introduced the term DevSecOps, aiming to get security a seat at the table with IT developers and operators. The question is, how far has security come since then? Do DevSecOps teams have the culture, practices, and tooling they need to release technology into production faster but also reliably and securely? The recently published SANS DevSecOps Survey shows significant traction. More organizations are looking to shift-left security to ensure that security is prominent in their development practices. Over 50% of respondents claimed they resolved crit ..read more

Cloud computing has become synonymous with enterprise IT, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Though enterprises now spend roughly $545 billion annually on cloud infrastructure, according to IDC, and 41% of that spend goes to the top five cloud providers, the reality is that a substantial amount of money, even “cloud” money, isn’t being spent with the big hyperscalers. Instead, it’s being plowed into other companies pitching Kubernetes and associated infrastructure. “Open and approachable” may define the future of the $500 billion cloud infrastructure market.
