7 Biggest Cloud Security Blind Spots

Cloud computing boon is for innovation, yet security organizations find themselves running into obstacles.
8 of 8

Forensics and Threat-Hunting Telemetry

Some of the biggest cloud blind spots that security teams are battling today are related to forensics and threat-hunting telemetry. Not only do organizations struggle to get the right information fed from all of their different cloud resources, but even when they do manage to do this they face an uphill battle. Just consolidating that data and correlating it with on-premises telemetry becomes its own nightmare - a form of multidashboard blindness for incident response and threat-hunting teams.
According to SANS Institute, over half of organizations faced frustrations in getting low-level logs and systems information for forensics from their cloud providers, and less than one in three organizations have been able to integrate the forensics and incident-response tools they use in-house with their public cloud environments.
