With the growing focus on Kubernetes, containers and serverless, CIOs need to start thinking along the lines of "securing cloud by design" and not as an afterthought. This is critical from both cost and speed perspectives.

From a cost perspective, applying the same thinking as on-premises when moving to cloud is usually expensive. "Not understanding the fact that you can secure by design using the services that are already available with the cloud service provider is an expensive proposition," says Ashish Rajan, cloud evangelist and co-founder and host of the Cloud Security Podcast.

Meanwhile, having proper guardrails using capabilities from the cloud providers mapped to the parameters set by the business enables developers to go faster with new rollouts, thus, speeding up time to market for a competitive edge.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Rajan discusses:

  • The why and how of cloud security by design and the future of policy as code in cloud;
  • Minimum guardrails for CIOs and CISOs to secure their cloud estate;
  • How to simplify security in a multi-cloud environment.

Rajan helps CIOs and CISOs plan, build and execute their cloud security roadmap. His podcast covers varied topics targeted to make cloud security meaningful for businesses.
