Cloud Threat Modeling

When moving to the cloud, we help you ensure that the relevant risks are identified and can be addressed accordingly. Our specialists can utilize different threat modeling frameworks to help define which one is most relevant for your business. We have vast experience in conducting threat modeling and analysis for products and services. The main benefit of Threat Modelling is to identify relevant threats and risks to provide valuable information for rational security investments and decisions.

 

When taking into use cloud services or building them yourself a generic model for security investments is made across the project without clear visibility on what the real threats and risks are. Therefore, it may be challenging to see the whole picture and whether the investments are reasonable and provide the appropriate value for that specific use case.

 

Cloud Platform Security

Our specialists support building your cloud environment according to recommendations provided by the vendor as well as our own experience derived from working with various cloud technologies and being a member of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). With our help you can rest assured that your cloud services are built securely to ensure proper business outcomes and continuity.

 

With ramping up Infrastructure or Platform as a Service several services can be utilized quickly by several parties to decrease time to market. However, taking into account all security recommendations that are relevant for all parties for all services may be cumbersome. Nonetheless, in case these are not addressed properly, the end result may be a sub-optimal solution security wise. These may be costly and time consuming to address later on in the service lifecycle, possibly leading to downtime for the business and in the worst case scenario losing critical business data and reputation.

 

Cloud Security Framework

We help our customers draw up a Cloud Security Framework to support their transformation based on methods we have developed over the years as well as utilizing knowledge developed with Cloud Security Alliance. The result of the Cloud Security Framework is a model, which identifies and mitigates the risks through safe processes covering e.g. vendor lock in, necessary controls, permitted data, and availability.

 

Generally, organizations have a cloud strategy or an idea on what cloud services to use and for what use cases. The benefits of the use case are generally well drawn out and compared to the costs of implementing the cloud services. However often the risks associated with the use case may not be well defined if at all. This may result in making decisions based on an incomplete business case and in the worst case ending up in a difficult situation to remediate all the risks.

 

Cloud Provider Assessment

We can help assess the relevant risks for different cloud providers be it a technical assessment or administrative risk based approach to ensure that all the relevant measures and controls are in place to protect your business. Furthermore, we can help you assess that the certifications that the cloud providers have are relevant to you and cover relevant operations. When taking into use new cloud services we help ensure that the services are safe to use.

 

As companies have started adopting cloud at an increasing pace, several cloud providers have started providing specific services for different business units be it HR, Sales, Finance or Marketing. The benefits of these new solutions are often invaluable, however prior to moving business critical operations and data to the cloud these providers should have sufficient security measures in place.
