If worse comes to worst, can you determine how an attacker breached your environment?
Forensic evidence often resides in ephemeral resources, and without advance preparation, necessary data can be unrecoverable
Access to forensic data in the cloud is often managed by a separate infrastructure team, and getting necessary permissions results in long delays
Piecing together forensic timelines from enormous amounts of cloud data, across logs, artifacts, and external context, remains extremely challenging
Modern malware and data breaches in cloud environments are often fileless and operate either solely in memory without leaving any trace on disk, or via APIs or integrated SaaS offerings, making it increasingly difficult or impossible to properly investigate with traditional forensic methods and tooling.
