9 Questions you Should Ask About Your Cloud Security
Business leaders need to start asking new questions about the security of their cloud environment—and security teams need to be prepared to answer them. Cloud attackers don’t care about checklist security programs—they routinely cross the arbitrary boundaries we draw around things and sidestep security solutions to get what they’re after.
