Why should you be managing cloud resource hygiene in your environment?

English Intermediate Security

Securing the cloud resources of your environment is an error-prone and time-consuming task when performed manually. In fact, there are many examples of data breaches caused by misconfiguration of the cloud resources like S3 buckets or Cloud storage accounts. But, there are better ways to automate this process with a couple of technical approaches that you can use to mitigate these risks including cloud resource hygiene with infrastructure-as-code (IaC). In fact, by eliminating manual configuration and shifting to infrastructure-as-code (IaC) your organization can minimize this threat and improve the security posture of the workloads. Join my session to learn how you could eliminate these risks by following DevSecOps principles. Learn how IaC could allow you to version control changes in the Azure cloud environments.
