Insider threats cover a wide range of cyberattacks initiated by somebody inside the traditional security perimeter enforced by firewalls and intrusion prevention systems. Many organizations are still neglecting the insider threat, despite this threat source being recognized as one of the root causes of data breaches. While external attacks are nearly always intentional, insider attacks can be intentionally targeted at an individual, malicious intent, or a breach caused by accident. Human error, negligence, loss of devices, or broken IT processes lead to putting the organization at risk and can harm both the image and bottom line. Organizations tend to be better at providing protection against external cybersecurity threats rather than focusing on internal threats. According to reports, many organizations are still neglecting the insider threat, despite this threat source being recognized as one of the root causes of data breaches.
Within organizations, cloud operations and security teams are tasked with deploying and managing workloads in highly dynamic, flexible public cloud environments, paying close attention to policy configuration, patch management, connection policies and access control. The complexity of cloud security operations increases significantly as cloud environments grow in terms of the number of instances, accounts, regions and operations. Simply moving an existing workload to the cloud without the appropriate security management measures in place for visibility or control can leave workloads exposed and less secure than if they remained within an enterprise datacenter.
