The increasing digitization of everyday life in the Corona crisis brings new challenges for security on the Internet, according to the Amazon technical director Werner Vogels. In the pandemic, many inexperienced users of online services were added who could become easy prey for cyber criminals, Vogels warned at an appearance at the DLD All Stars innovation conference on Sunday. “We need to upgrade our security measures. That is crucial.”
Attacks more and more attractive
The “bad actors” in the network developed just as quickly as the good ones. Amazon is a leading provider of cloud services for startups and established companies through AWS. Safety is the number one topic in his talks with customers today, said Vogels. Companies also turned to cloud platforms because they did not trust themselves to protect their systems on their own. Security is a problem that will not go away.
The three-day online event DLD All Stars, which began on Sunday, comes close to a digital version of the annual conferences in Munich. A key topic should be the question of what the world needs after the corona pandemic and how it should go on, said DLD organizer Steffi Czerny.
