Public cloud and responsibility is a difficult topic. However, most of the companies still have to understand that self-responsibility is a central point using the public cloud. The provider does his homework up to a certain level and delivers services and tools the customer has to use to do his homework. Thus, the complexity mostly sticks in the architecture of the infrastructure respectively in the application running on the infrastructure. However, a customer cannot drop the full responsibility into the hands of the provider.
“Shared-Responsibility” is key in the public cloud. How this works and how companies have to deal with this in terms of operation and security I discussed together with Amazon Web Services German country manager Martin Geier and Zalando STUPS Hacker Henning Jacobs during the Computerwoche live webcast “Security First in the Public Cloud“.
The recording of the webcast is now online and can be watched for free under “Webcast mit Zalando und AWS: Security First in der Public Cloud” in German.
