Identifying and evaluating security vulnerabilities is essential at every stage of software development and system management. New vulnerabilities surface all the time, demanding ongoing vigilance as well as effective methods of assessment and response. And recent data shows that this is increasingly the case.

Open source libraries have become an indispensable part of modern applications. Approximately 90% of organizations use open source software to support their services, but monitoring these dependencies can be difficult when environments run thousands of ephemeral services. The complex nature of modern applications, in combination with the challenge of keeping a competitive edge in a fast-moving market, can make it difficult for organizations to identify and remediate threats in a timely manner.

So far in this series, we’ve looked at the importance of securing an organization’s network, application components, and the endpoints that support them. In this post, we’ll look at the following best practices for protecting the different types of data that flow through these components. But first, we’ll look at how modern applications process and manage data, as well as common weaknesses and security threats to these systems.

As your business grows and your services scale in number and complexity, it’s difficult to maintain a rapid pace of innovation while keeping your applications secure. It’s particularly challenging to respond to attacks, as DevOps and security teams need to collaborate to understand each attack’s root cause and remediate the vulnerabilities that enabled it.

Organizations are scaling their environments at a rapid pace, deploying thousands of cloud resources, services, and accounts. Because of their size and complexity, these environments are more susceptible to compliance issues—a misconfiguration in a single cloud resource can lead to costly data breaches. For that reason, organizations are prioritizing governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) management to ensure that their environments are configured appropriately.

Editor’s note: This is Part 3 of a five-part cloud security series that covers protecting an organization’s network perimeter, endpoints, application code, sensitive data, and service and user accounts from threats. In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, we discussed the importance of protecting the boundaries of networks in cloud environments and best practices for applying efficient security controls to endpoints.

Just like shopping on Black Friday, AWS re:Invent has become a post-Thanksgiving tradition for some of us at Datadog. We were excited to join tens of thousands of fellow AWS users and partners for this annual gathering that features new product announcements, technical sessions, networking, and fun. This year, we saw three themes emerge from the conference announcements and sessions.

With the continual increase of attacks, vulnerabilities, and misconfigurations, today’s security organizations face an uphill battle in securing their cloud environments. These risks often materialize into unaddressed alerts, incidents, and findings in their security products. However, part of the issue is that many security teams are often stretched too thin and overburdened by alert fatigue.

The security industry is full of complex terminology like threat, vulnerability, and mitigations. Definitions matter as we design processes that scale. At Datadog, the Security Research functions are focused on detection and response to specific types of threats and vulnerabilities. Workload vulnerabilities, cloud control plane vulnerabilities, and even cloud service provider vulnerabilities. Each security finding based on specific risk indicators needs to be addressed differently at Datadog and in our communications to the broader community.

As businesses have modernized and migrated their tech stacks from on-prem to the cloud and broken down monoliths into microservices, security teams have had to evolve. This evolution has led to new tools and new practices to avoid incidents. In this panel moderated by Datadog’s Andrew Krug, we chat with security engineering leaders about the processes they’ve adopted or created to keep modern, distributed systems safe. We also discuss what organizations can do to keep ahead of threats as our systems keep advancing.

Modern web applications are incredibly complex. Frameworks, javascript, and dependency management have made understanding and maintaining a baseline security standard maximum difficulty. With attack vectors like those listed in the OWASP Top 10 it can be incredibly difficult to know where to start and what the metrics for success are. Every web browser today supports a variety of "secure headers". These headers can be served as part of each response from the web server stack and can prevent a variety of common attacks. Perhaps the most impactful among these is content security policy headers or CSP.

At Datadog’s scale, with over 18,000 customers sending trillions of data points per day, analyzing the volume of data coming in can be challenging. One of the largest log sources internally at Datadog are networking logs. Being able to analyze and make sense of them is critical to keep Datadog secure. To help with the task, we have built a flow analysis pipeline that alerts against network level Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) like IP address, port combinations, and data exchanged.
