Account or Service Hijacking:
Account or service hijacking is not new. Attack methods such as phishing, fraud, and exploitation of software vulnerabilities still achieve results. Credentials and passwords are often reused, which amplifies the impact of such attacks.
Cloud solutions add a new threat to the landscape. If an attacker gains access to your credentials, they can eavesdrop on your activities and transactions, manipulate data, return falsified information, and redirect your clients to illegitimate sites. Your account or service instances may become a new base for the attacker. From here, they may leverage the power of your reputation to launch subsequent attacks.
No public examples are available at this time.
- Prohibit the sharing of account credentials between users and services.
- Leverage strong two-factor authentication techniques where possible.
- Employ proactive monitoring to detect unauthorized activity.
- Understand cloud provider security policies and SLAs.
Cloud customers need assurance that providers are following sound security practices in mitigating the risks facing both the customer and the provider (e.g., DDoS attacks). They need this in order to make sound business decisions and to maintain or obtain security certifications.
Our Cloud Security Assessments provide means for customers to:
1. assess the risk of adopting cloud services;
2. compare different cloud provider offerings;
3. obtain assurance from selected cloud providers;
4. reduce the assurance burden on cloud providers.
5. select and deploy the security monitoring tools needed and customizing the flow analysis features available on routers.
Our Cloud Security Assessment evaluation will cover all aspects of security requirements.
