How the Cloud Is Shifting CISO Priorities
Shai Morag advises CISOs to protect identities as the new perimeter and describes key areas of competency for every cloud security team
Over the last decade - and especially in the last five years - the challenges facing CISOs have grown and evolved dramatically. Their security efforts and budgets have to align closely with the overall goals of the entire organization. Those goals can range from maintaining customer confidence in the data protection efforts of the organization to protecting intellectual property from theft.
In addition to navigating and managing the new technical complexities that come along with transitioning to the cloud, CISOs are also tasked with building a talented cross-discipline team and finding the right defensive technologies to implement.
In his latest post for Dark Reading, Ermetic co-founder and CEO Shai Morag explains how the greatly expanding attack surface created by the cloud needs to be protected. He shares a three-step process to get great results in shifting focus to protecting identities as the new perimeter. He also explains the three key areas of competency that every cloud security team should possess.
