The Service

Cloud security assessment also referred to as cloud risk assessment, is a review of your organisations’ cloud infrastructure. It identifies what vulnerabilities exist in your cloud environment, what controls are in place and how effective they are at managing vulnerabilities. This service can be carried out remotely. There are many different types and providers of cloud environments, the following are currently the two most popular: 

  • Microsoft cloud services such as Office 365, Azure

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)

The Benefits 

  • Minimise and mitigate the risk of your critical data being leaked from your cloud environment

  • Full visibility of your users and what they have access to in the cloud

  • Enhance security, ensuring users are valid and only have access to the resources and information they need, and for the minimum time required

  • Provide insights for your overall information security posture

The Challenge

The cloud helps you efficiently store and manage data at considerably lower costs than traditional IT environments. However, it also opens up your information systems to a new set of weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Private, public and hybrid cloud architectures all present unique challenges in maintaining compliance with data protection regulations and protecting sensitive and critical data. Misconfigurations, inappropriate user access levels and missing security tools all lead to vulnerabilities that could potentially give attackers access to your network. 

Findings from a cloud security assessment can help you protect business operations, personnel and customer data that is held on your cloud environments such as Microsoft O365. 

Our Process

At BH Consulting we help you manage your cloud adoption and relevant cybersecurity risks. We help you from an initial cloud adoption risk assessment, cloud migration, cloud discovery, secure cloud implementation, to regular cloud assessments and provision of ongoing security solutions.

We use several up to date industry practices to benchmark our assessment;

  • ISO 27001 Information Security Standard

  • NIST

  • CIS Controls

  • CSA guidelines

Once the assessment is completed, we will review all findings and provide a detailed report outlining key issues identified. In addition, we will provide expert advice and recommendations to manage those issues going forward. Our consultants will discuss each of the key areas with you to ensure the impact of our findings are fully understood and where necessary provide further details on how best to address those issues within your organisation.
