How can we navigate the ever-evolving portfolio of cloud platform security features, select the right ones for our cloud usage and ensure that they are properly configured?
Establishing and implementing secure configurations in the cloud based on best practices continues to be a significant challenge. Misconfiguration and inadequate change control ranks second in the Cloud Security Alliance's 2019 report “Top Threats to Cloud Computing: The Egregious Eleven”. It is often the leading cause of data breaches, ranked the highest security issue in the same report.
Cloud resources are transient by nature. Resources can be spun up and torn down almost instantaneously. Traditional security approaches and perimeter-based security tools are less effective in a world of dissolving perimeters and reduced visibility. Traditional controls and change management approaches that require multiple roles and approvals may not keep pace with or be as effective in the cloud.
Securing cloud is a complex task that requires a continuous effort. At Deloitte, we take a business-aligned cloud security posture management approach to systematically reviewing cloud usage along with cyber-risk domains, highlighting potential misconfigurations and prioritising remediation with you to secure these as necessary.
How do you reap the transformative benefits of cloud while remaining secure and compliant? Leverage our continuous cloud security posture management approach to navigate these cloud security challenges and accelerate cloud growth with peace of mind.
