with Paula Januszkiewicz, Hacker, Enterprise Security MVP, 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?
