Cloud investment continues to grow
over 20% annually as organizations are
looking for faster time to deployment,
scalability, reduced maintenance, and
lower cost. But there is one aspect
of cloud that consistently worries IT
and security professionals – how to
achieve high levels of security in the
cloud. As cloud adoption increases, the
fears of unauthorized access, stolen
identities, data and privacy loss, and
confidentiality and compliance issues
are rising right along with it.
This report has been produced by the
350,000 member Information Security
Community on LinkedIn in partnership
with Crowd Research Partners
to explore how organizations are
responding to the security threats in the
cloud and what tools and best practices
IT cybersecurity leaders are considering
in their move to the cloud.

Attacks on financial services institutions are growing in both quantity and sophistication. Our new State of the Internet/Security report studies criminal behavior across this advanced and expansive financial services attack economy: from a popular authentication mechanism for staging credential stuffing attacks to the use of stolen identities to cash out ill-gotten gains. The report identifies leading DDoS and application-layer attack vectors, lucrative phishing variants, and how criminals stage decoy attacks to distract from their real targets. Attacks that prove successful in financial services often move on to other industries. Download the report, and see what petabytes of data tell us.
Authentication is the beating heart of security. The most fundamental action in all of IT is to identify “who you are”—and authentication is the building block that answers that question. Now more than ever, IT teams must do everything they can to ensure that users are who they say they are, and that their credentials have not been stolen. IT is in state of crisis, with hundreds of millions of identities stolen annually. For system administrators, it’s crucial to know which users have the right to access a given resource, and whether unauthorized users have tried to get in.
