CLOUD SECURITY SERVICES
As organizations migrate to the cloud, they need information security professionals who are cloud savvy and well-versed in the broad set of policies, procedures, controls, and technologies utilized to protect virtualized IP, data, applications, services, and the associated infrastructure of third-party data centers. Cloud security architecture is effective only if the correct defensive controls are implemented. Our independent security risk assessments and audits will evaluate your provider’s posture and produce a clear and recognizable trail of activity and resource access at the organizational level.
Cloud security breaches and incidents are now more commonplace than ever. According to the 2021 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), in 2020, 73% of cyberattacks involved cloud assets, compared to only 27% in the previous year.
Cloud security management can be difficult for security teams used to an on-premise legacy system and traditional cybersecurity assessment practices can be challenging to scale, making it difficult to determine the security of your cloud-hosted data. The hackers know this, and they will exploit the vulnerabilities and weaknesses of unpatched software, weak passwords, soft perimeter security, and resulting in active management of your cloud environment that occur when assets aren’t analyzed and monitored effectively.
Independent reviews are critical, and cloud audits performed by credentialed auditors
will typically surface significant security and/or compliance shortcomings.
We will customize your cloud security audit to the scope of your environment, industry, and size of your organization, reviewing security policies and protocols and incorporating security best practices in each domain. We have the knowledge to develop an effective, holistic cloud security program based on your shared responsibility model and crafted to your organization’s needs.
