It is essential to craft a response plan within your cloud security strategy. To be safe, you should assume a breach will occur eventually. Therefore, you need a plan with clear roles and responsibilities — including department names and names of specific people — so everyone knows what's expected of them. You should also test, review, and update the plan yearly.
Increasing resilience requires your security teams to go beyond simply preventing attacks. You must enable rapid attack detection, response, and recovery. You should also assume that your company might eventually face a breach and ensure that you balance resources and technical design between attack prevention and management. Although assuming "failure" can be difficult to accept at first, it is no different from the well-established "fail-safe" engineering principle. Planning for failure can help your teams focus on resilience.
Encryption hides your data from unauthorized users by converting it into another code or format. Companies must encrypt their data in the public cloud and during transit. Cloud service providers or third-party vendors can help with encryption.
Cloud services increase the need for endpoint security. Businesses must deploy endpoint security solutions to protect browsers and devices. Embedding effective client-side security within browsers and devices as well as requiring users to update regularly can help protect endpoints.
DevSecOps enables organizations to introduce security early in the software development cycle (SDLC). Because DevSecOps expands development and operation team collaboration to make security a shared responsibility, implementing this application security practice can necessitate a change in organizational culture, processes, and tools.
