Cloud Security Podcast by Google

  • Matt Linton, Chaos Specialist @ Google
  • John Stone, Chaos Coordinator @ Office of the CISO, Google Cloud


  • Let’s talk about security incident response in the cloud.  Back in 2014 when I [Anton] first touched on this, the #1 challenge was getting the data to investigate as cloud providers had few logs available. What are the top 2022 cloud incident response challenges?
  • Does cloud change the definition of a security incident? Is “exposed storage bucket” an incident? Is vulnerability an incident in the cloud?
  • What should I have in my incident response plans for the cloud? Should I have a separate cloud IR plan?
  • What is our advice on running incident response jointly with a CSP like us?
  • How would 3rd party firms (like, well, Mandiant) work with a client and a CSP during an investigation?
  • We all read the Threat Horizons reports, but can you remind us of the common causes for cloud incidents we observed recently? What goals do the attackers typically pursue there?
