Cybersecurity – Hygiene is the Problem

This article corroborates what we are hearing from our customers: They all have people and processes dedicated to addressing basic IT security hygiene, yet things still fall through the cracks because of

  1. Lack of implementation of security hygiene especially for the cloud, including lack of availability of automation tools.  Shortage of skilled IT security personnel exacerbates the problem further.
  2. Complexity in the environment – different IAAS, PAAS, SAAS environments, including support for multi-cloud environments,  in addition to their existing on-prem.
  3. Sheer number of resources that need to be checked – some of them have 100,000’s of resources across VMs, network devices, databases, containers, etc. .
  4. Velocity and frequency of Change(s), including lack of visibility in the cloud.
  5. Shared responsibility model from the cloud service providers puts part of the burden for protecting the cloud infrastructure on the end customer.
