Securing the cloud is no simple task

Accudata’s cloud security assessments start first with discovering how your business leverages the cloud as part of its organizational and technology strategies. We will uncover sensitive data flows and mission-critical processes in the cloud to ensure organizational alignment. Then, we will establish an inventory of your cloud service providers (CSPs), such as AWS, Azure, and others, which becomes the basis for succeeding technology-specific and security best-practice reviews. Whether your data and applications are in a public, private, community, or hybrid cloud, Accudata’s assessments are customer-focused, business driven, based on industry best practices, and performed by seasoned governance, risk, and security consultants in collaboration with a team of technology integration experts.

Our multi-faceted approach addresses the following common cloud challenges:

  • Review of organizational alignment with current cloud strategies
  • Review of cloud governance, risk, and compliance processes
  • Discovery of CSPs (AWS, Azure, ServiceNow, and others)
  • Discovery of cloud service types, such as infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), function-as-a-service (FaaS), or software-as-a-service (SaaS)
  • Identification of shared-responsibility models for all CSPs
  • Identification of sensitive data flows and mission-critical processes in the cloud
  • Inventory of critical cloud resources, assets, and objects
  • Review of cloud identity and access management
  • Secure use of cloud infrastructure, platform, and software services, including:
  • Proper execution of data encryption and key management for sensitive stored data and data flows
  • Effective use, visibility, and operationalization of security logging, alerting, and monitoring technologies in the cloud
  • Secure remote cloud administration and privileged access
  • Data resiliency, backup, and recovery processes in the cloud
