The Federal Government is moving to the cloud at a rapid pace, fueled by the desire to modernize and consolidate IT infrastructure. Amazon AWS alone states that over 2000 federal agencies¹ are making use of their FedRAMP certified services, while Microsoft’s Azure offerings are poised to encompass the Department of Defense via the JEDI Program. Simultaneously, a daily onslaught of news is emerging across the world about compromised cloud infrastructure, spilling millions of records containing sensitive information due to misconfiguration, lack of visibility, or neglect to adhere to industry best practices. It is obvious why the topic of cloud security has garnered so much attention!
