Cloud Security Testing & Consultancy
What are the critical risks?
The move from on-premises systems to cloud services has transformed the design and delivery of computing technology
and applications. These changes have created new security vulnerabilities and changed the threat landscape significantly. Whilst the
hardware and software may be managed by the cloud provider, the responsibility for security remains with the information owner.
How do you answer these questions?
- Data Breaches: every company's worst nightmare: sensitive information falls into the hands of their competitors,
or is published on the web causing massive reputational damage.
- Data Loss: an attacker destroying your data can have catastrophic consequences for your business. The new EU
data protection rules also treat data destruction as a breach, with the same penalties.
- Account Hijacking: If an attacker steals your credentials, they can read or modify your information, conduct fraud,
or redirect your customers to fake sites. Your cloud services may also enable the attacker to leverage the power of your reputation
to launch subsequent attacks.
- Insecure APIs: The security and availability of cloud services depends on the security of the service's APIs. From
authentication and access control to encryption and activity monitoring, these interfaces must protect against both accidental
and malicious attempts to circumvent security.
