Re: September 25 - Day 5: Cloud Security & Risk
@Brian.Dean--I think that precaution v. cure is difficult.  The problem is that a lot of bad things are done on the precaution end.  I tend to follow these guidelines:

- let employees use the devices they want with unfettered local administrative rights

- log everything, and monitor the logs constantly, including human log review on a regular (preferably daily) basis

- implement every non-invasive strategy possible to limit threats (e.g., intrusion prevention, DNS filtering, email scanning)

- classify information granularly and make sure you're applying least-user-privilege with respect to information
