Top 7 Cloud Security Attack Vectors Heading into 2021
Date: Friday, September 25th at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT
As users retreated to home offices, 2020 was arguably as disruptive a year as there has ever been since IT became a major factor in business. More cloud apps, access and activity was spun up in 2020 than ever before, with major implications for security. Coming to the end of the year and given the radical changes to our infrastructure, where we can expect the attacks to come from next year?
In this special session, IT security expert Ian Thornton-Trump will take you on a tour of the near-term threats in the cloud for organizations.
In his signature style that combines authoritative knowledge with copious examples from the headlines, Ian will cover the most important attack vectors including:
- Insecure endpoints that have access to the cloud.
- The big gaps in end users' knowledge and training
- Issues with security groups and Access Control Lists
- New and migrated apps that are now in the cloud -- but not on the organization's security checklist
- Insecure backups
- Impossible patching cycles
- The emerging threat of AI
Find out why Ian believes we're in a dangerous "golden hour" for the attackers' camp in cybersecurity.
