  • Cybersecurity in the Age of the Cloud by Frank Kim - February 21, 2020 

    The hand-selected resources in this eBook provide a well-rounded look at cybersecurity considerations and practices in the age of the cloud. Each report in the collection touches on different parts of the five functions of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework - identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover. The collection is rounded out by the recent SANS 2019 Cloud Security Survey to provide a snapshot of today's cloud security environment and associated concerns.
