Know What You're Responsible For
Businesses should chat with providers to clarify security misperceptions. 'You want to talk to cloud providers and understand exactly what is covered under the shared responsibility model,' says Ford, noting how companies may be 'blind to certain areas of the infrastructure.'
In addition to asking which areas of security are covered, he advises asking which tools can provide insight into the behaviors that will help identify more sophisticated attacks.
Parimi provides a list of questions to ask cloud service providers: What security are you responsible for, and what am I responsible for? Which security and privacy standards do you meet? Do you keep a signed audit trail of which identities performed which actions and when through their UIs and APIs? What access do you provide to logs?
