Cloudy Security Thoughts
We love our cloud systems, but after hitting the subscribe button, what do we need to do to ensure ongoing security?
Many cloud systems are not optimally configured out of the box. Bottom-line, we move quickly these days. When was the last time you checked all the security policies and settings across your cloud systems? When was the last time you ran a security or vulnerability scan?
Many cloud platforms have unnecessary items hanging around, creating open security holes and costing extra in subscription costs - unused IAM accounts, accounts without MFA, extra load balancers or test server instances, extra storage volumes, unnecessary open ports or IP addresses...these pieces need regular cleanup and testing.
To be continued...we will be posting regular updates on Cloud Security Related items. Please reach out to us to continue the conversation.
