The Evolution of Cloud Forensics and Incident Response

June 1, 2022

With the adoption of cloud infrastructure rapidly changing our attack landscape, we find ourselves with SOC and IR teams asking for some of the same visibility they had in the data center in the cloud. In some scenarios, the traditional SOC/IR tools are hardly practical or cost-effective. Due to the ephemeral nature of cloud infrastructure, a lot of the traditional security operations motions need to evolve to replicate the high-fidelity forensics that have given security teams the peace of mind to know what happened, on what host and what traffic traversed the cloud. In this talk we will leverage several native and third-party tools to capture malicious activities that can be performed on a cloud host to provide guidance on cloud forensics and the evolution of security operations and incident response.
