IEEE OC CyberSecurity Technical Talk – May 16, 2018

Secure Cloud Apps Before Mayhem Strikes



The power of the cloud to deliver robust apps cost-effectively is undeniable, but don’t forget to do your security due diligence. Specific cloud apps can pose a higher risk to your organization than on-premise web applications behind the corporate firewall. Understanding third-party cloud app security hype is critical in uncovering limitations on identity management, account provisioning, data security, access control, account privileges, data exportability/sharing, user monitoring, and auditing. Evaluating capabilities against leading practices, testing security features, and performing user account auditing are all critical elements of a well-rounded cloud app security audit. Knowing how to conduct a comprehensive and efficient security audit of third-party cloud apps is an essential part of a risk management program.



At the end of this session, participants will be able to perform a high-level security review on third-party cloud apps by assessing the processes and procedures used for managing the cloud solution and by collecting responses to security checklists.



At the end of this session, participants will be able to describe how to test security features of cloud apps to include restrictions based on IP address and user groups, monitor login attempts from untrusted networks, and evaluating data exportability and sharing features.



At the end of this session, participants will be able to perform user account auditing in cloud apps and determine how to validate non-compliance issues such as active accounts for users that no longer work at the organization.
