Like many of my peers, I marvel at the amazing ways the cloud has changed our lives and how we work. At the same time, I’ve lost untold hours of sleep worrying about the security risks this transformation creates. As a CISO, I spend a big chunk of every day planning for, evaluating, and responding to different types of threats to our network and applications. But that’s not what keeps me up at night—it’s the areas of exposure and lack of visibility that I know exist and yet have a limited ability to address. Basically, the things that don’t go bump in the night.

While the cloud is amazing, a worrying lack of visibility goes along with it. I've written about things to keep in mind when developing a security approach, over on Dark Reading.
