Securing the Cloud: The Team of No

Understand Why Security Teams Delay Migrations

Cloud computing evangelists have long been touting the technology's ability to allow IT to move at the speed of business. As more and more businesses take advantage of public cloud, I see it as the embodiment of what Bill Gates dubbed "business at the speed of thought."

As DevOps, IT Ops, and, ultimately, businesses as a whole, increasingly adopt a common goal of accelerating innovation via the cloud, no one wants to be responsible for halting progress — that's dirty work better left to government agencies — but SecOps are often the ones delaying cloud adoption.

I took a few minutes to talk about why that is, because the first step towards solving the security challenges unique to the public cloud is understanding why many security teams become the Team of No.
