Manage Risks with Webapper Cloud Security Audit Services
Businesses continue rapid adoption of cloud computing to benefit from the promise of increased efficiency, better scalability, and improved agility. A growing number of companies are migrating mission-critical services and sensitive information to the AWS cloud. Users have become more mobile, threats have evolved, and actors have become smarter. Users distribute information across multiple locations, many of which are not currently within the organization’s infrastructure. The “shared responsibility model” means that audits must be significantly altered to provide assurance to stakeholders that their cloud adoption is secure. A cloud security audit should be conducted by an independent third party to obtain evidence via inquiry, physical inspection, observation, confirmation, analytics, and/or re-performance.
Webapper’s experienced team performs cloud security audits. We ensure that your company understands your security challenges in order to control your environment and protects your data in the cloud. During a cloud audit, we specifically test compliance-driven areas against industry best practices to mitigate and remediate risks.
Align Your Business & Cloud Security Auditing Objectives
During the planning and execution stages of a cloud security and compliance audit, it’s important to set and follow objectives for the audit. Aligning audit objectives with business objectives ensures that the investment serves to achieve stronger internal controls and lower risks.
How do you ensure that your security and privacy practices in AWS are in place and effective? What happens to your business if a hacker gains access to your cloud environment? Are you confident there are no misconfigurations in your cloud infrastructure? Who’s responsible for cloud security – you or your cloud hosting provider? If your company is using the cloud to store or process critical data, then you should audit your security policies, procedures and technology to ensure any institutional risks are identified. As a managed cloud hosting provider, we are vigilant about our security standards.
