LEARN A CONTINUOUS LIFECYCLE APPROACH TO CSPM

According to Gartner, “Nearly all successful attacks on cloud services are the result of customer misconfiguration, mismanagement and mistakes. Through 2023, at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” Gartner also asserts that, “Through 2024, organizations implementing a CSPM offering and extending this into development will reduce cloud-related security incidents due to misconfiguration by 80%.”1

Clearly, correct configurations and compliance are paramount going forward, as a single mistake can expose an unprecedented number of systems and sensitive data. By adding cloud security posture management as an extra layer of protection to your cloud components, you can track user behavior, apply consistent security policies across multiple applications, and enforce policies in the event of misuse.

Gartner’s “Innovation Insight for Cloud Security Posture Management” report offers security and risk management leaders recommendations on implementing CSPM, such as:

  • Prioritize a CSPM project in 2019. Sign short-term contracts only as the market evolves.
  • Engage the cloud operations team. A broader cloud management platform may already be in use for inventory, billing and resource utilization that provides sufficient security capabilities.
  • Extend CSPM risk assessments into the development process for the proactive elimination of risk before cloud workloads, services and configurations are placed into production.

Read the report to learn how and where security and risk management leaders should invest in their cloud security posture management processes.
