If you see me speaking about cloud it’s pretty much guaranteed I’ll eventually say:
Cloud security starts with architecture and ends with automation.
I’m nothing if not repetitive. This isn’t just a quip, it’s based on working heavily in cloud for nearly a decade with organizations of all size. The one consistency I see over and over is that once organizations hit a certain scale they start automating their operations. And every year that line is earlier and earlier in their cloud journey.
I know it because first I lived it, then I watched every single organization I worked with, talked with, or generally glanced at, go down the same path.
