Cloud Security Alliance Global Enterprise Advisory Board Publishes State of Cloud Security 2018

Report outlines what must happen to speed the secure cloud adoption process between the enterprises, cloud service providers, and regulators.

SEATTLE and SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- RSA Conference Booth #1039 - The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world's leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment, today released State of Cloud Security 2018, which lays out some of the latest cloud practices and technologies that the enterprise information security practitioner must be aware of as organizational data expands beyond the traditional perimeter.

The report, authored by the CSA Global Enterprise Advisory Board, examines such areas as the adoption of cloud and related technologies, what both enterprises and cloud providers are doing to ensure security requirements are met, how to best work with regulators, the evolving threat landscape, and goes on to touch upon the industry skills gap.

The Cloud Security Alliance Global Enterprise Advisory Board is a collection of leading experts from large multinational companies representing over 10 unique industries. This board has been constituted to represent the point of view of large IT end users, and to articulate the perspective of the consumers of cloud computing related to the topic of information security.

"The state of cloud security is a work in progress with an ever-increasing variety of challenges and potential solutions. It is incumbent upon the cloud user community, therefore, to collaborate and speak with an amplified voice to ensure that their key security issues are heard and addressed," said Vinay Patel, chair of the CSA Global Enterprise Advisory Board and Managing Director at Citigroup. "We hope this document will serve as a roadmap to developing best practices in the establishment of baseline security requirements needed to protect organizational data."

Among the report's key takeaways are:

    --  Exploration of case studies and potential use cases for blockchain,
        application containers, microservices and other technologies will be
        important to keep pace with market adoption and the creation of secure
        industry best practices.
    --  With the rapid introduction of new features, safe default configurations
        and ensuring the proper use of features by enterprises should be a goal
        for providers.
    --  As adversaries collaborate quickly, the information security community
        needs to respond to attacks swiftly with collaborative threat
        intelligence exchanges that include both providers and enterprise end
        users.
    --  A staged approach on migrating sensitive data and critical applications
        to the cloud is recommended.
    --  When meeting regulatory compliance, it is important for enterprises to
        practice strong security fundamentals to demonstrate compliance rather
        than use compliance to drive security requirements.

Established to support the Cloud Security Alliance in further anticipating emerging trends, the Global Enterprise Advisory Board serves to enhance the influence enterprises have over the future of the cloud industry's ability to address dynamic and optimal cloud security requirements. Members represent some the world's most recognized experts within information technology, information security, risk management and cloud computing industries.
