Insights From the 2023 State of Cloud Threat Detection and Response Report

60 minutes, including Q&A

It probably comes as no surprise that most organizations already conduct the majority of their computing in the cloud. In fact, according to the "State of Cloud Threat Detection and Response" report, four of every 10 orgs shifted even more computing to the cloud over the past year. Organizations report maintaining, on average, 65% of their infrastructure in the cloud, with 72% leveraging multi-cloud environments – meaning they use multiple public cloud computing and storage services from different vendors in a single heterogeneous architecture to improve capabilities and reduce cost.

So how does digital transformation relate to SecOps transformation? Learn what your security peers are saying in this insightful and entertaining webinar with Dr. Anton Chuvakin, Office of the CISO, Google Cloud and Phil Neray, VP of Cyber Defense Strategy, CardinalOps.

We'll unravel some of the mysteries about how companies actually approach detection and response in the public cloud, including exploring some of the key questions below:

  • Is the cloud harder or easier to secure than on-premises?
  • How is SecOps for the cloud different from on-premises?
  • Why the identity layer is more critical in the cloud
  • When it might make sense to copy all your on-premises detection tools to the cloud (and when it doesn't)
  • Why security leaders might have different perceptions about their readiness than SecOps practitioners
  • Why modern cloud skills and a shift in mindset are required to gain all the benefits cloud offers for security
  • Why automation is critical to overcoming alert overload and complexity

We'll also provide a technical demo of the CardinalOps detection posture management platform, showing how automation can:

  • Eliminate detection coverage gaps, prioritized according to the cloud layers, IAM applications, and MITRE ATT&CK techniques most relevant to your organization.
  • Ensure your detections are working as intended and have not become "silently" broken or misconfigured over time.
  • Drive cost savings by tuning noisy and inefficient queries, reducing logging volume, and eliminating underused tools in your stack.
