Cloud Security Consulting

Ensure all of your cloud environments meet best-practice standards for security, scalability and functionality.

Cloud Security Implementation & Consulting
For the Modern Enterprise

Modern organizations rely upon a Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline, hybrid cloud deployments, cloud-native infrastructure and technologies such as Kubernetes, and microservices to drive value to customers faster than ever before.  We understand how difficult it is for modern SRE/DevOps teams, who are concentrating on code deployment at speed over security.   CDG can help by offering Security at Speed.

Cloud Security Outcomes

Cloud Security Engineering

Agile companies need a security program that prioritizes speed and automation in order to achieve growth objectives without introducing increased risk. Cloud Security engineers and consultants from Cyber Defense Group will assess, design and implement security controls that measurably improve the security posture of your codebase and cloud infrastructure.

Secure SaaS/Cloud Platform Implementation

CDG assists clients with customizing their cloud/SaaS platforms in a secure and privacy-aware manner.  The cloud is flexible and scalable, which is great for bottom lines but can expose businesses with little cloud experience to unfamiliar risks.  The division of responsibility for security between a cloud provider and a customer like you can be difficult to navigate but CDG can help.  Your prior focus may have been on hardware security and network intrusion prevention but now it needs to be on cloud security.

FAQ

A:  You might be surprised that as a cloud customer, you are likely still responsible for many aspects of privacy and security compliance.  For example, often customers are responsible for selecting security settings and privacy controls within a cloud/SaaS solution.  In addition, although we’re not lawyers we know that at the end of the day a business is going to be responsible for their vendors even if a data breach is traced back to a SaaS cloud product.

A:  We understand and you’re not alone in that confusion.  Each product or platform is different and your contract or terms of use with the vendor is a good place to start.  CDG can help you review your documentation, understand your obligations vs the vendors, and develop an appropriate information management program.

A:  Using default settings is easy for the cloud provider but it almost never makes sense for the customer.  Default settings are designed to make the cloud or SaaS product as easy to use as possible so you’ll keep renewing that subscription.  This approach works until it doesn’t and when it doesn’t, it really doesn’t (hello, data breaches).  CDG can work with you at the onset to help you find the right balance between security and ease of use for your employees.

A:  Yes, in some ways more than ever.  At its core good information management and security is achieved through people and processes and those still abound even in the cloud environment.  Leveraging cloud solutions allows companies to grow fast and big, which is great, but it also places the burden of security and privacy on business stakeholders who often have no to little information security experience.  Think about the marketing manager being asked to take responsibility for a huge CRM implementation; it makes sense that they wouldn’t know where to start.   Having a defined and written information management and security program ensures that everyone in your organization is aware and accountable for the cloud or SaaS systems that they manage.
