Back in February, cloud security specialists DivvyCloud released their 2020 cloud misconfigurations report, which highlighted that misconfigured cloud installations had cost organisations $5tn (approximately £4tn) over the past two years.
During that time, over 33 billion records were exposed; an increase of 80% from previous years. These included the Adobe breach in October 2019, as well as the breach at B&Q in January 2019.
The report also revealed that older businesses are more likely to have misconfigured cloud installations, as nearly 70% of the breaches related to organisations over 10 years old. Organisations that had been established less than five years ago only accounted for just under 7% of breaches.
