Cloud Environment Security Assessments
Cloud security includes the technologies, controls, processes, and policies which together protect your cloud-based systems, data, and infrastructure. This type of security is a shared responsibility between your organization and its cloud service provider.
Why Your Organization Needs a Cloud Security Strategy
Organizations using cloud technology need to implement a cloud security strategy to protect their data, safeguard their customer’s privacy, and ensure regulatory compliance. The strategy is designed to protect your organization from the potential reputational, financial, and legal damages caused by a data breach or loss.
In simple terms, each CSP customer is responsible for securing its cloud environment. As a company utilizing cloud services, your organization is entirely responsible for activating the tools and services to properly monitor and secure your environment. Your organization is also charged with implementing AWS Well Architected Framework (for AWS environments) or the Azure Best Practices for Microsoft Azure environments.
