Cloud Security Fundamentals

The level of complexity inherent in cloud-native systems presents a challenge to even the most seasoned of infosec pros.

Building a security strategy that can cut through the complexity starts with a foundation of visibility, setting you up to get more advanced with cloud security posture management (CSPM) and cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP).

An Analytical Approach to Securing Your Cloud Environment

Whether you’re on the bleeding edge and fully cloud-native, or running a hybrid cloud environment, odds are you have some visibility gaps. And that’s a problem, because you can’t secure what you can’t see. Securing the cloud environment requires a thoughtful analytical approach to workload and infrastructure observability, including understanding the threats you face. To answer these questions it can be helpful to start by listing out the right questions you need to answer. Think of it as the Who, What, Where and How of your cloud that can reveal where the blind spots are, and how they could create risk.

Uptycs has partnered with the Aimpoint Group to build this helpful guide to make it easy to know where to start securing your cloud infrastructure. We’ll walk you through 10 questions every security pro should ask when you’re thinking about your organization’s cloud security.


Whether you're reviewing your cloud security program, or building one from scratch, this guide will point you in the right direction. Think of it as a handy checklist to get you started, or as a helpful reminder when it’s time to audit your security controls or review processes when it’s time to onboard a new CSPM or CWPP vendor.
