Have You Reviewed Your Cloud Strategy and Security After the Kronos Ransomware Attack?

The Kronos cyberattack and other recent cloud security breaches demonstrate the vulnerabilities we all face, as well as the complexity our increased reliance on software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and platform as a service (PaaS) solutions presents to our security architectures and business stability. Hackers are attacking strategic targets with an aim of causing maximum disruption by going after third-party vendors and their customers. 

Enterprises must first have an inventory of all their cloud vendors and services, then apply a comprehensive cloud security framework to them that includes a strategy to minimize the impact that any one vendor has on your enterprise's operations in the event of a cyber incident. This encompasses an effective mitigation plan to enact when those services aren't available- which should be readied during the acquisition phase and operationalized over the course of service adoption and integration.
