Last week’s uproar on the Microsoft Azures database (Cosmos bug) hit the boardroom. A lot of major companies use Microsoft Cloud, so Azure customers were in for a rough surprise. Wiz's Chief Technology Officer Ami Luttwak (his company found the vulnerability) describes it as “the worst cloud vulnerability you can imagine.”
Bloomberg says Microsoft warned thousands of its cloud computing customers, including some of the world’s largest companies, that intruders could have the ability to read, change or even delete their main databases. In this blog, I don’t describe the incident or ‘chase the ambulance.’ I give my personal take on other industry experience and elaborate on what I would do if I were a Chief Information Security Officer of a global pharmaceutical company using Azure and if the CEO asks me “What the hack happened and what do we need to do?”..
