Cloud Critical Controls
It’s no secret – organizations are moving to the cloud faster than their security teams can secure them. The daunting task of catching up to the security needs of the cloud can overwhelm and frustrate security professionals and business transformation leaders. While a thorough cloud security strategy is an essential part of cloud adoption, this process can take more than a year to implement. During this period, cloud adoption will continue to happen without any validated security program. While many cloud architects and developers will follow established “best practices,” there is little to no validation or verification that can be applied to the security work done. What’s needed is a set of baseline cloud security controls and capabilities that can be applied to any cloud environment to establish a minimum level of security competency. More than a simple control matrix, the cloud critical controls lay out provider-specific capabilities that can be implemented without slowing down the dev-ops process.
Optiv has established a comprehensive cross platform set of cloud critical controls based on a combination of the Cloud Security Alliance’s Cloud Control Matrix (CCM), Center for Internet Security (CIS) consensus-based benchmark and our own experience. Implementing critical security controls for the 10 cloud domains listed below will give your organization insight into the following questions:
Identity and Access Management
Governance, Risk and Compliance
Business Resilience (Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery)
Legal and Privacy
Many of these controls can be verified through the cloud providers’ API delivering continuous validation. Others will help establish baseline policies and awareness that can be applied with minimal effort.
These critical controls covering cloud service providers such as AWS, Azure and Office 365 are maintained on a regular basis and updated to reflect new security feature releases from the cloud providers.
While not a complete cloud security program, implementing security controls in each of these cloud domains is a strong start to a comprehensive cloud security program.
