Hybrid Cloud Security - Why a Prevention-First Approach is Paramount

Enterprises need to understand that their biggest cybersecurity threat is not attackers targeting their data or even malicious insiders – it’s the complexity of and lack of visibility into hybrid-cloud environments.The complex nature of these environments makes them a breeding ground for simple but costly mistakes. This is what happened to AWS in 2017 where one incorrect command knocked their S3 service offline, taking dozens of websites and applications offline, impacting hundreds of thousands of businesses and causing millions of dollars in lost revenue.

In order to avoid these types of errors, enterprises need to better understand which employees have the privileges that can lead to these types of errors. Then, they must proactively manage those privileges to shrink their risk exposure using the principle of least privilege (POLP). If not, they run the risk of compromising every security system, policy and procedure they’ve ever worked to put in place.
