THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING
A cybercriminal may use the customer's documents to identify and manipulate possible methods for gaining access to and exfiltrating confidential data from an organization's cloud environment.
Fremont, CA: Almost every company has incorporated cloud computing into its operations to various degrees. With the introduction of the cloud, however, comes the need to ensure that the organization's cloud protection policy is capable of defending against the top cloud security threats. The following are four cloud security threats:
Customers are often provided with a variety of application programming interfaces (APIs) and interfaces through CSPs. These interfaces are well-documented to make them as user-friendly as possible for CSP customers.
But if a customer's cloud-based infrastructure interfaces are not adequately secured, this may lead to problems. A cybercriminal may use the customer's documents to identify and manipulate possible methods for gaining access to and exfiltrating confidential data from an organization's cloud environment.
Cybercriminals select their targets based on how profitable their attacks are supposed to be. Cloud-based technology is available straight from the public Internet, is often insecure, and houses many confidential and valuable information. Furthermore, since a wide range of businesses uses the cloud, a successful attack can be replicated several times with a high likelihood of success. As a result, cyberattacks on cloud deployments are becoming more common.
Cloud-based deployments, unlike on-premises networks, are outside the network perimeter and directly available from the public Internet. While this is beneficial in terms of employee and consumer access to this technology, it also makes it easier for an intruder to obtain unauthorized access to an organization's cloud-based services. An attacker may gain direct access to a system through improperly configured protection or compromised credentials, possibly without the organization's knowledge.
Lack of Visibility
The cloud-based services of an enterprise are located outside of its network and operate on an infrastructure that the organization does not own. As a result, many standard network visibility tools are ineffective in cloud environments, and some businesses lack cloud-specific protection tools. This can hinder an organization's ability to track and protect its cloud-based resources from attack.
