Yes, cloud services offer a new type of attack vertical. Especially when depending on the type of service, (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), you have different constraints as to what safeguards you are allowed to place on the data as there are different data governance policies.

Re: Talk about outsourcing
Some of these insider personas are definitely familiar-- or a version of a familiar rogue actor. Enterprise apps like Salesforce definitely expose companies to risks that were not on the radar even a few years ago. It's scary. And the problem is not going to get easier.

I think its important to note that many people are not technology savvy. Negligent employees are a more common risk and its because without any awareness training in security they are looking for the easiest way to perform their job function. However, easiest rarely coincides with most secure and this is why it is imperative that security policies are well communicated and enforced within an organization as well as regular security awareness training.

@Marilyn.

Yes it's wild how a security short coming that apparent can be overlooked! Or, even worse, acknowledged and simply did it anyway. I would be interested to see how prevalent this is as this is not the first time I've heard of this occurence. India is another area that unknown outsourcing is common.

Talk about outsourcing
What a sweet deal for the virtual globetrotter. Well at least until he got caught. Details are quite revealing. According to ABCNews, the developer sent his company login key through Fedex to a third-part contractor in China, who did the work while globetrotter spent the day on social media and ebay. All the while getting "excellent remarks" in performance reviews.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
