Two-thirds of cloud attacks could be stopped by checking configurations, research finds

Two-thirds of cloud security incidents could have been avoided if the configuration of apps, databases, and security policies were correct, new research suggests. According to the research, two out of three breached cloud environments observed by the tech giant “would likely have been prevented by more robust hardening of systems, such as properly implementing security policies and patching systems.” “These two elements trickled down to the most frequently observed initial infection vectors for organizations: improperly configured assets, password spraying, and pivoting from on-premises infrastructure,” IBM says.
