Topic: Monitoring Threats in All Types of Cloud Environments
Abstract: As cloud adoption rapidly expands, organizations face many security threats that can compromise their cloud infrastructure and data. Therefore, companies must have effective threat-monitoring tools and strategies to safeguard their cloud environment, but this is easier said than done. The need for a stringent threat monitoring policy puts an additional burden on security teams to manage access and privileges.
Most threats related to cloud assets fall under identity and access management, privileged accounts, third-party vendors, etc. Therefore, monitoring infrastructure and objects in the cloud is a critical and continuous process involving various tools, suites, and automation capabilities to enhance visibility.
The current webinar aims to help participants understand the risks related to cloud storage and operations as well as strategies for a comprehensive framework for monitoring and detecting insider and external threats. The webinar also discusses the recommended telemetry for automating threat detection processes and continuous cloud environment monitoring.
- common threats associated with cloud storage, infrastructure, and applications
- recommended telemetry to monitor threats
- recommendations around threat monitoring for cloud infrastructure, identities, and objects
- adjusting threat detection capabilities in line with the shared responsibility model
- developing threat detection and monitoring framework for SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS
- incorporating a zero-trust model to improve the security posture
