DisruptOps: Breaking Attacker Kill Chains in AWS: IAM RolesBy Rich
Breaking Attacker Kill Chains in AWS: IAM Roles
Over the past year I’ve seen a huge uptick in interest for concrete advice on handling security incidents inside the cloud, with cloud native techniques. As organizations move their production workloads to the cloud, it doesn’t take long for the security professionals to realize that the fundamentals, while conceptually similar, are quite different in practice. One of those core concepts is that of the kill chain, a term first coined by Lockheed Martin to describe the attacker’s process. Break any link and you break the attack, so this maps well to combining defense in depth with the active components of incident response.
