  • Managing public cloud workload risk

    Most breaches of cloud data happen due to misconfigurations and mistakes made by the Cloud Service Provider (CSP) customer, not due to vulnerabilities or failures in the underlying CSP service.

    It drives the question —what do organizations need to do to augment or boost their current cloud security approach to better manage breach risk at an acceptable level in the cloud?

    In this white paper, learn why aligning cloud complexity with organizational risk appetite is key to determining when and how to augment CSP security controls.
