In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a rapid uptick in demand for cloud services. Organizations globally increased their cloud workloads by more than 20%, leading to an explosion of security incidents.
In this talk we will review the latest cloud threat research from Palo Alto Networks elite group of threat researchers, Unit 42. The talk will walk through findings that indicate cloud security programs for organizations globally are still in their infancy when it comes to security automation (i.e., DevSecOps and shift left).
Bottom line: rapid cloud scale and complexity without automated security controls embedded across the entire development pipeline is a toxic combination.
