A majority of organizations faced cloud security incidents in the last year

According to a study by Venafi, 81% of organizations have experienced cloud-related security, and 45% suffered at least four incidents in the last 12 months. 51% of the security decision-makers (SDMs) believe security risks are higher in the cloud than on-premises

Common cloud-related security incidents

  • Security incidents during runtime (34%)

  • Unauthorized access (33%)

  • Misconfigurations (32%)

  • Major vulnerabilities (24%)

  • A failed audit (19%)

The key operational and security concern

  • Hijacking of accounts, services or traffic (35%)

  • Malware or ransomware (31%)

  • Privacy/data access issues, such as those from GDPR (31%)

  • Unauthorized access (28%)

  • Nation state attacks (26%)

The most popular options on responsibility for security cloud-based applications could be

  • Cloud infrastructure operations and enterprise security teams (24%)

  • share responsibility across multiple teams (22%)

  • developers writing cloud applications (16%)

  • DevSecOps teams (14%)

The security team lacks visibility of developers’ fast innovations and is left out of cloud security decisions. There is a need to reset this approach. Architecting a control plane for machine identity is a perfect example of a new security model created specifically for cloud computing. It implants security into developer processes and protects businesses without slowing down engineers.

US giants dominate Euro cloud spending ☁️

According to Synergy Research Group, the European cloud market has grown 5 times from 2017 to €10.4 billion in revenues in Q2 of 2022. AWS, Microsoft, and Google own 72% of cloud spending in it.

Their dominance has forced regulators to take note and Ofcom will review the sector next week.
