Misconfiguration of cloud solutions is often overlooked.
Cloud apps are usually quick and easy to sign up for.
The user often assumes that they don't need to worry about security because it's handled.
This is an incorrect assumption because cloud security is a shared model.
The cloud provider handles securing the backend infrastructure.
But the user is responsible for configuring security settings in their account properly.
45% of organizations experience between 1 and 50 cloud misconfigurations per day.
Use the tips below to improve cloud security:
• Enable Visibility Into Your Cloud Infrastructure
• Restrict Privileged Accounts
• Put in Place Automated Security Policies
• Use a Cloud Security Audit Tool (Like Microsoft Secure Score)
• Set Up Alerts for When Configurations Change
• Have a Cloud Specialist Check Your Cloud Settings
