The Cloud Security Risks Hidden in Plain Sight

There are two popular attitudes about cloud security, and both of them are wrong. One belief is that putting data in the cloud amounts to putting it on the public internet for anyone to access. Therefore, the only way to keep data safe is to keep it at home and out of the cloud altogether. The opposite belief is that cloud providers cover their own bases wel

Cloud Service Reconnaissance

Securing a Cloud deploymentThese days many organizations have migrated at least some of their IT services to a cloud environment. Cloud adaptation could be as basic as the use of Microsoft Office 365 on some workstations, or it could be much more comprehensive, such as the use of a fully integrated Azure or Amazon AWS infrastructure. One of the main re

Is Cloud Security a Safe Bet for Highly Sensitive Government Data?

Security is the primary focus of any government agency. One of the most obvious pitfalls of these agencies moving highly sensitive data to the cloud is that they surrender control to a third party. Moreover, nothing on the internet is truly secure, and all data is vulnerable to attacks and threats. The exposure footprint to those threats is staggering unde

Who Is Responsible for Cloud Security?

When implementing cloud projects, security is one of the most important issues. It requires companies to identify and understand the risks inherent to digitization, public networks and outsourcing of infrastructure components. Companies still fear that their data is insecure with cloud systems. IT professionals want to apply the same level of security to t

Cloud Security Is Not an Either/Or

Now that cloud has become pervasive, organizations and individuals everywhere need to think about cloud security. To say that data is either fully secure or vulnerable in the cloud would be far too simplistic. Two Schools of Thought There are two widespread but opposite beliefs surrounding security in the public cloud: Abandon all hope! When you send dat

Security Concerns Around Zombie Cloud Infrastructure

One of the most important benefits of the use of cloud instances over traditional network configurations is that one can be literally setup within seconds, by the click of a few buttons. This ability has dramatically reduced deployment times for test, model, and production systems. It also allows for great flexibility both from a technical and a billin

NetFlow Data Collection in Cloud Systems

The value of NetFlowWithin a network, connectivity is everything, but within a secure network, visibility is also everything. NetFlow data can provide both these requirements. NetFlow is a Cisco proprietary technology which allows for the collection of metadata generated by the traffic (flow) within a network. This metadata is invaluable for capacity p

Secure Shipping of Physical Data Carriers to and from a Cloud Service Provider

A cloud environment is ideally suited to store and analyze large amounts of data. If more storage space, CPU or memory resources are needed, services can usually be upgraded with ease. This situation is likely to occur because data tends to grow over time. This data could, for instance, be a sales database, ingesting logs from an e-commerce platform. T

Attacking the Cloud

It is no surprise that the rapid growth of cloud adaptation has attracted much-unwanted attention from potentially harmful parties.

Securing Your Cloud-Based Resources: Start With These Four Areas

Cloud-based resources have found their way into nearly every aspect of computing. While they have proven to generally be secure, enterprises are still directly responsible for protecting their systems and data in this environment.
