Topic: The Skills Gap in Cloud Security: Why It Exists and How It Can Be Bridged
As the pandemic motivated many businesses to migrate their workloads to the cloud due to the increase in remote work, technologies such as cloud computing and IoT expanded the attack surface and stretched security talent thin. Ransomware attacks and incidents related to cloud misconfiguration have shown that, though businesses are excited to migrate to the cloud, their security capabilities fall short of addressing the associated complexities.
Now more than ever, digital transformation has exacerbated the demand for digital security and its associated professions. The value provided by cloud technology and storage cannot be refuted, and this technology has fueled an increasing need for enterprises to secure their virtual assets. Even if prominent cloud service providers (CSPs) are employed by organizations for their complete virtual data management, security is not the sole responsibility of the CSP. The shared architecture of the cloud requires organizations of all sizes to employ security personnel to assure that no attack surface or misconfiguration is exposed. Join our webinar, where Jeff Sowell will discuss the critical skills gap in cloud security and the practical measures that can be taken to create new skills or fill in the existing gaps.
