In a growing shift toward using cloud apps, how we share data is rapidly changing. As such, the manner in which threats are weaponized and shared is also evolving. Using the cloud, threat actors are finding new ways to evade traditional security defenses. Tools that once inspected several ports and protocols for data and threats, are now blind to encrypted traffic that is predominantly using APIs to share data across the cloud.

In this session we'll talk through the cloud-enabled kill chain and how it can be leveraged to protect organizations from modernized threats without impeding digital transformation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identifying cloud-enabled threats and how they differ from traditional ones
  • What security controls you should focus on when undertaking digital transformation
  • How to provide guardrails for organizations were so few cloud apps are managed by IT
