The COVID-19 Conundrum: Deep Dive into Cloud Threats


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title


Wednesday, May 12, 2021
3 p.m. ET
In the latest edition of the biannual Unit 42 Cloud Threat Report, researchers analyzed data from hundreds of cloud accounts around the world between October 2019 and February 2021 to understand the global impact of COVID-19 on the security posture of organizations. In response to the global pandemic, organizations globally increased their cloud workloads by more than 20%, leading to an explosion of security incidents. This led to the conclusion that rapid cloud scale and complexity without automated security controls embedded across the entire development pipeline are a toxic combination.
In this webinar, Unit 42 cloud threat researchers Jay Chen and Nathaniel “Q” Quist will provide a deep dive into the findings. Attendees will learn:
  • How the latest cloud threats may be affecting your organization
  • Which industries suffered a spike in security incidents in light of the pandemic
  • Best practices your organization can apply today to stay protected
