Cloud security considerations

Risk and compliance

The cost of a data breach has become more severe. It’s no longer purely a financial penalty or the operational resolution costs (although these are increasing) that are impacting the organisation. As user and customer reviews gain greater authority, data breaches and poor service can cause significant reputational damage and deplete hard won trust and brand identity.

Skills shortage

As everyone in the cyber security industry with responsibility for hiring knows, skill sets are short, candidates with cloud security skillsets are shorter still and this is growing year on year. To alleviate this, some organisations are choosing to outsource tasks to service providers so choosing a good partner can significantly ease this pain.

The opportunity

An increased and compliant cyber security posture enables organisations to set themselves above others and lead the way as the most secure in their sector. This builds trust, provides reassurance for customers and service users and can make cyber security a part of an organisations unique selling points.

Securing your cloud with Trustmarque

Most cloud service providers, like Microsoft or AWS, protect against intrusions and attacks on their systems, underlying applications, and infrastructure. However, it is the organisation who is using the cloud services to secure their own usage and data, including how the service is used, who can access their data, and who is sharing what with whom.

To protect your organisation against threats when using the cloud, we cover six key areas, these are:

  • Visibility of your whole IT estate and your users’ behaviour
  • Threat protection against malicious activity
  • Data protection to safeguard you most value assets
  • Governance of systems and date to comply with rules and regulations
  • Identity to ensure only authorised people have access
  • Infrastructure protection of apps and systems whether in the cloud or as part of a hybrid solution
