With rapidly changing architecture and API-driven automation, cloud platforms come with unique security challenges and opportunities. In this updated second edition, you'll examine security best practices for multivendor cloud environments, whether your company plans to move legacy on-premises projects to the cloud or build a new infrastructure from the ground up.

Developers, IT architects, and security professionals will learn cloud-specific techniques for securing popular cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and IBM Cloud. IBM Distinguished Engineer Chris Dotson shows you how to establish data asset management, identity and access management (IAM), vulnerability management, network security, and incident response in your cloud environment.

• Learn the latest threats and challenges in the cloud security space
• Manage cloud providers that store or process data or deliver administrative control
• Learn how standard principles and concepts—such as least privilege and defense in depth—apply in the cloud
• Understand the critical role played by IAM in the cloud
• Use best tactics for detecting, responding, and recovering from the most common security incidents
• Manage various types of vulnerabilities, especially those common in multicloud or hybrid cloud architectures
• Examine privileged access management in cloud environments

As the title states, this book is a practical guide to securing your cloud environments. In almost all organizations, security has to fight for time and funding, and it often takes a back seat to implementing features and functions. Focusing on the “best bang for the buck,” security-wise, is important.

This book is intended to help you get the most important security controls for your most important assets in place quickly and correctly, whether you’re a security professional who is somewhat new to the cloud, or an architect or developer with security responsibilities. From that solid base, you can continue to build and mature your controls.

While many of the security controls and principles are similar in cloud and on-premises environments, there are some important practical differences. For that reason, a few of the recommendations for practical cloud security may be surprising to those with an on-premises security background. While there are certainly legitimate differences of opinion among security professionals in almost any area of information security, the recommendations in this book stem from years of experience in securing cloud environments, and they are informed by some of the latest developments in cloud computing offerings.

This is primarily a book about security, not compliance. That said, if you need to meet specific compliance requirements, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, or FedRAMP, you will find some limited guidance on designing your security controls so that you will be able to do so.

Who Should Read This Book:
This book is designed as an intermediate-level resource and is intended primarily for two types of practitioners:

• Those who have some experience with securing on-premises environments, but little or no experience with cloud environments
• Those who have experience building cloud environments, but little or no experience with securing those cloud environments

The goal of this book is to provide a conceptual-level understanding of the “art of the possible” in cloud security. You won’t find a cookbook-style guide on exactly how to implement various controls in specific cloud environments, for a few reasons. One is that such guides tend to become out of date very quickly, because cloud providers are constantly improving their implementations. Another is that the cloud providers generally do a better job of providing explicit how-to guides than I can, because the implementations are specific to the way they’ve designed their services. A detailed how-to guide by one cloud provider will be more useful than a generic how-to that tries to cover multiple cloud providers. What I try to provide is the understanding of when you need to find such a guide and use it.
