Threat Update 34 – Isn’t the Internet Supposed to be Bombproof?

AWS, Cybersecurity News

The FBI recently averted a potential attack on the AWS cloud – and in the process raised many questions about the stability and redundancy of “the cloud” and the technology built on it. While it’s easy to visualize redundancy in the on-prem storage world, who exactly controls these things in the cloud? How does the “shared responsibility” model split up this critical component? Is redundancy built into IaaS/PaaS offerings? Or must organizations or developers build it themselves?

Join Kilian Englert and Ryan O’Boyle from the Varonis Incident Response team live as they dissect what could happen if a major data center went down, and how organizations leveraging cloud technology or solutions can prepare for business continuity.
