The Cloud Threat Report Shows Why You Can’t Take Cloud Security for Granted

September 27, 2020

Businesses of every size keep furthering their journey to the cloud. The cloud has accelerated digital transformation across every industry, streamlining the processes involved in our work along with the transactions involved in “doing business.”

While organizations often evaluate how to further their cloud adoption, one area of consideration that tends to get relatively overlooked is cybersecurity. That needs to change.

Embracing the cloud broadens your attack surface and exposes your network and systems to new vulnerabilities. It can no longer be just an IT issue; it requires dedicated cybersecurity teams to monitor and handle the increasingly sophisticated cloud threats posed by cybercriminals. Especially now as businesses embrace hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Know What You’re up Against: Read the Cloud Threat Report

According to cloud-security software provider Netskope, nearly half of all cyberthreats are now cloud-enabled. So, staying protected from cloud threats must be a top priority for every organization. To help accomplish this, Arctic Wolf recently published The Cloud Threat Report: An In-Depth Look at the Latest Cloud Security Trends, which is available for free on our website.

The report covers the key trends and issues you need be aware of to stay safe in the cloud. Included is a critical look around the top cloud-related challenges businesses face today. Not just in terms of security itself, but also the issues that affect it, such as budget, governance practices, staffing and resource shortages, and compliance.

Learn Why Cloud Breaches Come in Many Forms

Cloud security is a shared responsibility between you and your cloud provider, and attackers looks for gaps in security wherever they are. Last year’s infamous Capital One breach was the result of a misconfigured AWS web application firewall. But as the report details, the same attack vectors used by hackers on on-premises infrastructure also apply to the cloud:

  • Phishing
  • Malware
  • Insider threats
  • DDoS attacks

Read the report to see how best to address these and other security issues in the cloud. You’ll also find which approaches organizations use to handle their cloud security, as well as three reasons why organizations typically fail to secure their environments.
