Test the effectiveness of your AWS, Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure security controls

In today’s business environment, many companies are using cloud-based systems to house critical operational data. The assumption that cloud servers and services are impenetrable because they are provided by tech giants is wrong. Not only do you need to ensure you have a secure business continuity model, you need to understand that the safety and protection of your data is also your responsibility.

The remote nature of cloud systems can leave you vulnerable to hostile attacks, making a cloud security assessment essential to identify any security flaws. We assess the security of cloud infrastructure and applications hosted by a cloud service provider such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure. Our testing gauges the effectiveness of your security controls. We identify, safely exploit and help to remediate vulnerabilities before they are compromised by malicious adversaries.

By conducting a cloud security assessment, organisations can identify vulnerabilities and receive actionable recommendations to enhance the overall security of their cloud environment.

How often should I conduct a cloud security assessment?

The frequency of your cloud security assessments depends on several factors, including the nature of your business, the sensitivity of your data and any regulatory requirements that you need to adhere to. However, it is generally recommended to conduct cloud security assessments at least once a year or whenever significant changes are made to your cloud infrastructure. Additionally, regular monitoring and testing of your cloud security controls should be performed to ensure ongoing protection against new threats and vulnerabilities.

How long does a cloud security assessment take?

Typically, a comprehensive cloud security assessment can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. The process involves identifying and analysing potential vulnerabilities in the cloud environment, evaluating security controls and policies, conducting penetration testing and ensuring compliance with relevant regulations and standards. It is important to allocate sufficient time to thoroughly assess and address any security risks to ensure the protection of data and infrastructure in the cloud.
