Cloud misconfiguration has become a critical security issue

Cloud misconfigurations are a huge security problem, resulting in the exposure of sensitive data. Despite the risks, many businesses are failing to properly configure their instances, in part due to confusing information from vendors.

This is according to a new report from cloud security provider Lightspin, which performed analysis on 40,000 AWS buckets and their cloud storage permissions. The company found that almost half (46 percent) of AWS S3 buckets may be misconfigured and should be deemed insecure.
