Tenable comments on Gmail hacking

Tenable Network Security : 07 June, 2011  (Technical Article)
Tenable Links Gmail Hacks To General Cloud Based Security Risks

Following on from news last week that Google mail was hacked, Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable Network Security makes the following comments.


"This is an example of the security threats that cloud based services pose, and attacks such as this should remind us that we need better visibility of the risks we take when cloud services are outsourced. In this instance, Google disclosed the breach and blamed Chinese hackers. However, we do not know how many other similar breaches have been dealt with by companies internally without us even knowing about it.


"Many risks are not obvious. For example, we have all received password reset emails that contain user IDs and a new password for online systems. However, subjecting these services to the same security and compliance controls is problematic.  IT executives therefore need more options to monitor the security and compliance status of their assets that are managed by cloud based services."
