ROADMAP FOR CLOUD SAFETY
For cloud automation to be effective, you must give equal weight to process, policy, and technology. Otherwise, you could run the risk of building an unmanageable technology stack.
It’s crucial to maintain proper cyber hygiene by performing thorough cleanup before automating. Additionally, the cloud, infrastructure, and security teams should work together to eliminate information silos and stay focused on a common goal.
Lastly, it would help to establish processes for continuous governance of their automation efforts. Such methods ensure that your IT teams catch any discrepancies or redundant technologies early in the cycle, thereby keeping the automation efforts effective, seamless, and practical.
