Internet 2.0 Conference Reviews PaaS Cloud Computing Scams

By: PRLog

One of the Internet 2.0 Conference's panel discussions, hosted in Dubai, discussed PaaS scams, fraudulent offenses, and effective prevention measures.

LAS VEGAS - April 3, 2023 - PRLog -- PaaS, or Platform as a Service, is a cloud computing model that allows developers to build and customize applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. Instead, the PaaS provider manages the servers, storage, and networking, allowing developers to focus on the application.

As more businesses move their applications and data to the cloud, Platform as a Service (PaaS) has become an increasingly popular choice for managing and deploying these applications. However, with this increased adoption comes an increase in PaaS scams that can put businesses and their data at risk. Panelists at the Internet 2.0 Conference on December 19-21, 2022, in Dubai reviewed PaaS cloud computing scams, spam, and fraud, along with prevention measures to help prevent further fraud.

Panelists started the discussion by reviewing serverless functions, a popular feature of PaaS that allows developers to run code without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. However, scammers have found a way to exploit this feature by overcharging businesses for their serverless functions. Cybercriminals can run up a business's bill without providing valuable services by creating fake serverless functions.

PaaS providers typically have robust security measures to protect against data breaches. However, cybercriminals have found ways to bypass these measures and exfiltrate sensitive data from PaaS environments. PaaS environments allow businesses to customize their applications to meet their specific needs. Such customizations can also lead to security vulnerabilities if not done correctly. Scammers can exploit these vulnerabilities to access a business's data or launch attacks.

According to panelists at Internet 2.0 Conference, one of the most effective prevention measures against PaaS scams, spam, and fraud is to conduct regular security assessments of your PaaS environment. These assessments can help businesses identify vulnerabilities and potential threats before scammers can exploit them.

In addition to this, by implementing Zero Trust security, businesses can significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access to their PaaS environments. Zero Trust security is an approach that assumes that all users and devices are potentially compromised and requires strict authentication and authorization protocols to access sensitive data. This can be achieved using multifactor authentication, encryption, and access control policies that restrict access to sensitive data only to authorized personnel.

Moreover, attending tech conferences, such as the Internet 2.0 Conference, is an excellent way to stay aware of the latest developments in the world of cloud computing, particularly when it comes to avoiding scams. From sessions about recognizing phishing emails and social engineering, to deep-dive discussions about the different platforms and offerings of PaaS (Platform as a Service), these events are essential for keeping on top of cloud computing trends and staying safe from hackers.
