Mastering Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM): Secure Multi-cloud Infrastructure Across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Using Proven Techniques by Qamar Nomani
English | January 31, 2024 | ISBN: 1837638403 | True EPUB | 472 pages | 7.3 MB

Strengthen your security posture in all aspects of CSPM technology, from security infrastructure design to implementation strategies, automation, and remedial actions using operational best practices across your cloud environment

Key Features

  • Choose the right CSPM tool to rectify cloud security misconfigurations based on organizational requirements
  • Optimize your security posture with expert techniques for in-depth cloud security insights
  • Improve your security compliance score by adopting a secure-by-design approach and implementing security automation

Book Description

This book will help you secure your cloud infrastructure confidently with cloud security posture management (CSPM) through expert guidance that'll enable you to implement CSPM effectively, ensuring an optimal security posture across multi-cloud infrastructures.

The book begins by unraveling the fundamentals of cloud security, debunking myths about the shared responsibility model, and introducing key concepts such as defense-in-depth, the Zero Trust model, and compliance. Next, you'll explore CSPM's core components, tools, selection criteria, deployment strategies, and environment settings, which will be followed by chapters on onboarding cloud accounts, dashboard customization, cloud assets inventory, configuration risks, and cyber threat hunting.

As you progress, you'll get to grips with operational practices, vulnerability and patch management, compliance benchmarks, and security alerts. You'll also gain insights into cloud workload protection platforms (CWPPs). The concluding chapters focus on Infrastructure as Code (IaC) scanning, DevSecOps, and workflow automation, providing a thorough understanding of securing multi-cloud environments.

By the end of this book, you'll have honed the skills to make informed decisions and contribute effectively at every level, from strategic planning to day-to-day operations.
