with Paula Januszkiewicz, CEO and Founder of CQURE, Microsoft MVP and RD, Cybersecurity expert
According to the National Security Agency (NSA) report on mitigating cloud vulnerabilities, misconfigurations came in as the top cloud vulnerability. The consequences of cloud misconfigurations can lead to major security hazards and even detrimental (and expensive!) downtime. Some common cloud misconfigurations include insufficient access controls and security settings related to data processing and authentication. Therefore, it is important to make sure our cloud solutions are not only configured in-line with our business requirements, but also improve the overall cloud security posture.
Why are misconfigurations so common — and yet so underestimated?
Join renowned hacker, pen tester, and cybersecurity expert, Paula Januszkiewicz in this on-demand webinar where she will live-demo a variety of cloud misconfigurations she has seen first-hand that may be utilized by hackers or identity thieves. Paula shows the audience how misconfigurations can lead to unauthorized access to instances or databases, system downtime, compliance violations, storage breaches, and more!
