1. Automated Attacks

Automated attacks in the cloud have become easier and more popular as software gets less expensive, the quality of attacker builds improve, customers put more systems online and environments become more complex, according to Threat Stack’s Bisbee.

The ability for any developer to put a system on the internet with just the swipe of a credit card has created an opportunity for highly leveraged automated attacks, Bisbee said. Software advancements have made large-scale data processing and collection easier for adversaries, Bisbee said, and there are often gaps between how a policy document said things work versus how everything is actually running.

In order to defend against automated attacks, Bisbee said organizations must know where all their systems are, what’s running on them, and what normal is. Businesses must adopt automation in their defense as well, Bisbee said, leveraging software engineering capabilities to automate the isolation and containment of potential incidents so that humans have more time to investigate.
