I spend the bulk of my time thinking and talking about
cybersecurity: the do’s, the don’ts, the trends, and the future of
security for the cloud. But as I sat down to review the articles for
this issue of Zero Day Magazine, it struck me that while my staff
and I are fully immersed in the industry on a daily basis, we are
not only serving the community of cloud experts, but also those
who are entirely new to the cloud.
It served as a welcome reminder that we can’t always start the
cloud security conversation at the “How do we make it better?”
stage. We can talk about evolving your security strategy, or
redefining it (which we do, a lot), but any road to securing
your cloud in the best way possible always starts with a strong
foundational understanding of what it takes to establish cloud
So as we settle into a new year and a new era of cloud security, I
urge you to revisit the basics of what cloud security means, and
what it takes to keep your data safe. You can start with “Searching
for Security?: IT Security Vendor Comparison” to get an analyst
firm’s take on the top security providers on the market today. Or,
if you’ve already got your security in motion, you can learn more
about the rules and best practices to put in place with “Automate
Your Cloud: 5 Security Operations Policies to Get Started,” by
Rachel Dines of CloudHealth Technologies.
Of course, with that, we are always looking forward, and we are
determined to keep ahead of the emerging threat landscape,
and the new technologies and practices that could help you,
our readers, improve an existing posture. So be sure to read up
on the “2017 Top Cyber Security Predictions” and the “Shifting
Battlefronts in Cloud Security” in this issue, and let me know what
you think about the outlook for our industry in 2017 by sending
me your questions and comments.
As always, I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for reading, and stay secure.
