Setting IAM Priorities in the Shift to the CloudConsultant James Gosnold on Avoiding Shortcuts
As more organizations rely more heavily on cloud-based applications as a result of a remote workforce, they must avoid taking identity and access management shortcuts, says James Gosnold of the cloud consultancy CloudKubed, who calls for the addition of another layer of authentication.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Gosnold discusses:
- How threat actors have adapted to the new remote workforce and compromises organizations might have made to deploy it;
- The role of containerization;
- Advice to security teams about refining their strategies and taking a "zero trust" approach.
Gosnold is head of security associate for U.K.-based CloudKubed. He formerly worked as head of technology services security at DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) and head of the CISO practice at Fujitsu Services.
