Enhancing Cloud Data Security: Insights from Dig Security at Infosecurity Europe

Dig Security is thrilled to announce our participation in Infosecurity Europe on June 20-22, 2023. Infosecurity Europe is the largest annual gathering of the information security industry in Europe, bringing together industry experts, innovators, and thought leaders to foster innovation, exchange knowledge, assess and compare solutions, and cultivate professional connections. In addition to attending the conference, Dig Security is excited to share that Yotam Ben Erza, Dig’s Chief Product Officer, will be delivering a compelling talk on the evolving challenges of cloud data security.

The Growing Complexity of Cloud Data Security

With businesses relying on cloud services more than ever and the exponential growth of cloud data, ensuring its security has become a complex task. Recent statistics indicate that 45% of businesses encountered a cloud-based data breach within the last year, revealing the pressing need for effective security measures. Several factors contribute to the complexity of securing cloud data, including security gaps arising from the shared responsibility model, human error resulting from self-service and evolving security controls, vulnerabilities exposing data to malicious actors, over-permissioning, insider threats, and more. 

The Role of Cloud Security Posture Management and Data Security Posture Management

To address the challenges presented by cloud data security, organizations have sought solutions that focus on protecting infrastructure. Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) emerged as the prevailing approach, but it failed to adequately safeguard sensitive data. Recognizing the need for a more comprehensive solution, Gartner recently introduced the term Data Security Posture Management (DSPM). DSPM facilitates the creation of a consistent security posture for data, encompassing both on-premises systems and cloud deployments. It offers functionalities such as data discovery, classification, and identifying static data risks based on contextual factors.

Bridging the Gap with Data Detection and Response

While DSPM provides an important foundation for data security, it lacks real-time monitoring, detection, and response capabilities. This has led to the emergence of a complementary subset of solutions known as Data Detection and Response (DDR). DDR continuously monitors and analyzes cloud events to quickly identify and respond to data threats, activating critical security workflows. By stopping attacks early in the kill chain, DDR has become a critical component, along with DSPM, in constructing a robust cloud security stack. Dig Security is the first and only solution that combines DSPM with real-time DDR. Read more about our platform here.

Lost in Translation: Cloud Data Security Challenges and the Solutions CISOs Need to Know

On Wednesday, June 21, 2023 during Infosecurity Europe, Yotam Ben Erza will delve into the specific data security challenges arising from cloud adoption and scalability in a talk titled, “Lost in Translation: Cloud Data Security Challenges and the Solutions CISOs Need to Know.” Drawing on prominent breach events from the past year, Ben Ezra will shed light on the current state of security tooling in the market. He will also share best practices for integrating controls and policies that ensure the protection of cloud data so attendees can gain valuable insights into the evolving landscape of cloud data security and practical strategies to enhance their own organization's defenses.
