Essential Strategies to master Incident Response in Cloud

Cloud Security Podcast

Apr 2 2024 • 45 mins

How do you build a Robust Detection Framework? Ashish spoke to Andrew Tabona, SVP of Cyber Threat Management and Incident Response at a Fortune 500 company about challenging the conventional wisdom of applying on-premise incident response plans to cloud environments. They speak about the critical metrics of mean time to detect, respond, and recover, and why mastering the fundamentals is key to effective cloud security.

The conversation also covers practical strategies for building a detection framework, the importance of a balanced approach to log ingestion, and the nuanced differences in incident response between cloud and traditional on-premise environments.
