Automating security posture, reducing risks and managing identity in the multi-cloud environment

The Singapore public sector faces the imperative of understanding the intricacies involved in managing contemporary IT infrastructures that span a diverse array of cloud environments, on-premise systems, and hybrid solutions. This challenge arises due to the swift evolution of the IT infrastructure landscape. 

The dynamic evolution in the public sector’s approach to adopting diverse cloud systems and infrastructure brings forth a set of new challenges. These include ensuring data privacy, seamless integration of different systems, implementing robust security measures, and adhering to stringent data protection regulations. 

According to the 2023 Thales Cloud Security Report, a concerning fact emerges: merely 41% of organisations have implemented zero trust controls in their cloud infrastructure, leading to data breaches. In light of this, the Singapore public sector must critically reassess its current strategies for securing applications and infrastructure. Within this context, the concept of zero trust security has emerged as a prominent approach, emphasising the crucial need to secure everything based on trusted identities. 

By adopting an identity-based strategy, zero trust security ensures that access to resources is granted only after proper authentication and authorisation. This approach provides public sector with a strong foundation as they navigate the shift to a multi-cloud environment. It empowers them to confidently migrate and protect their infrastructure, applications, and data, instilling a sense of trust and security throughout the process in cloud-native architectures.   

By embracing cloud-native architectures, the public sector can leverage advanced security services offered by cloud providers, such as secure key management and network segmentation, to enhance their security.  

Automation solutions will also play a critical role in applying security controls consistently across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, effectively reducing the likelihood of misconfigurations and vulnerabilities. 

Leverage Automation in IT Security 

Automation in IT security is centred around its ability to streamline security operations, boost efficiency, and enhance overall security posture. It examines how public sector can leverage automation solutions to streamline various security processes, such as vulnerability scanning, patch management, and incident response. This approach enables the achievement of consistent and reliable outcomes, while also minimising the potential impact of human error. 

Securing Modern IT Infrastructures 

With the increasing complexity of modern IT infrastructures, securing and protecting critical assets is of utmost importance. Cutting-edge automation solutions can effectively handle the intricate security requirements of hybrid and multi-cloud environments, providing insights into secure management, threat detection, and incident response. 

Dynamic Multi-Cloud Solutions 

In the era of multi-cloud, there has been a significant shift in the locus of control. Instead of relying primarily on physical controls, the emphasis has now moved towards trusted identities. This means that every entity must go through authentication and authorisation processes in order to obtain access to systems or resources. 

By adopting this identity-based framework, organisations can effectively navigate the complexities of securing dynamic multi-cloud environments while ensuring a higher level of security.  

Focusing on the critical aspect of security in modern IT infrastructures and leveraging cutting-edge automation solutions, organisations can unleash the future of secure and transformed IT operations. 

OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to our OpenGov Breakfast Insight, aimed at imparting knowledge on how to thrive in an era of multi-cloud architecture. Delegates will be discussing the best strategies on how to automate, provision, secure, connect, and run cloud infrastructure for the most important applications while improving speed, reducing risks, and optimising efficiencies. 

This session serves as a great peer-to-peer learning platform to gain insights and practical solutions that enable and empower organisations to successfully adopt a secure cloud operating model, drive reliability, improve cost, and maximise security & governance throughout the multi-cloud architecture. 

We will be discussing the:

  • TECHNIQUES to adopt zero trust security measures 
  • ENHANCEMENT in security process by enabling automation solution 
  • STRATEGIES to secure applications and infrastructure  
  • STAGES to implement seamless identity-based framework 
  • METHODS to secure access to secrets, and systems across network 
  • TOOLS required to prevent security breaches and vulnerabilities 
  • SOLUTIONS that enable organisations to effectively secure their data and systems by shifting to trusted identities
