The undeniable hype that cloud computing generated in the last while has seen an explosion in services and features offered by both newcomers as well as established players from traditional online markets. As organizations look to the cloud to cut costs and improve efficiencies, they should keep in mind that the cloud world is unstable and prone to disruptive changes. Security, as is often the case, lags behind features when assessing the suitability of cloud services. This webcast will provide a short background on common cloud services as well as popular providers for these services, before delving into a raft of simple attacks that demonstrate the fragility of many cloud services. The webcast will highlight common areas of weakness and identify the underlying risks that should be protected against.
