By the CSA Top Threats Working Group
In 2016, the CSA Top Threats Working Group published the Treacherous 12: Top Threats to Cloud Computing, which expounds on 12 categories of security issues that are relevant to cloud environments. The 12 security issues were determined by a survey of 271 respondents.
Following the publication of that document, the group has continued to track the cloud security landscape for incidents. This activity culminated in the creation of an update titled Top Threats to Cloud Computing Plus: Industry Insights.
The update serves as a validation of the relevance of security issues discussed in the earlier document, as well as provides references and overviews of these incidents. In total, 21 anecdotes and examples are featured in the document.
The references and overview of each anecdote and example are written with the help of publicly available information.
The Top Threats Working Group hopes that shedding light on recent anecdotes and examples related to the 12 security issues will provide readers with relevant context that is current and in-line with the security landscape.
