Cloud Encryption: How to not suck at securing your encryption keys – Marie Fromm
Common Cloud Data Encryption patterns are not preventing data breaches because many are doing encryption key management wrong. There is a tendency to apply “compliance checkbox” encryption, which does nothing to protect data against common threats. In many cases, it’s like buying a strong FIPS140-2 certified deadbolt but leaving the key in the door.
We’ll roll up our sleeves and take a deep dive at the problem and explore practical, actionable ways a security practitioner can get better control of encryption keys used in cloud solutions. Finally, we’ll discuss new ways of detecting when Bad Things are happening, and ways of using cloud automation to stop the bleeding.
