There is no doubt that Google Drive is a best-in-class solution for online file sharing and management. However, accidental or malicious exposure of sensitive files stored on Google Drive can be disastrous for enterprises. Case in point – a recent incident uncovered in a recent Elastica blog post occurred at a government agency where a document containing sensitive data including usernames and passwords stored in Google Drive was exposed publicly. In this webcast, Aditya K. Sood, Elastica Cloud Threat Labs Architect, will discuss:

  • A brief overview of the case study
  • The threat model and possible reasons for document exposure on Google Drive
  • The concept of "window of exposure" in the context of sharing documents and files
  • The different ways that targeted cyber-attacks can be launched using the exposed information
  • The importance of user behavior modeling techniques to detect risky behavior in SaaS applications
