While more organizations are preferring a cloud-first approach as part of their digital transformation strategies, security monitoring and incident response have yet to match up to this rapid change of pace. This calls for a paradigm shift on how CISOs should view their security boundaries.

So how does an organization enable security monitoring and IR in the cloud and do it the “cloud way”?

Here are four ways to help prepare for cloud security incidents:

  1. Automate security monitoring and IR of cloud assets using cloud-native SOAR
  2. Set up and prepare your cloud digital forensics and IR environment before you need it
  3. Retool your analysis, containment and isolation capabilities to support cloud-native resources
  4. Rehearse your security response capability with cloud focused adversary simulations
