Cloud Infrastructure Audit

A Cloud Infrastructure Audit is a comprehensive assessment process designed to evaluate the security, compliance, and performance of cloud-based infrastructure. It focuses on analyzing the configurations, security policies, and controls within cloud environments such as AWS, Azure, and GCP. The audit aims to identify potential vulnerabilities, ensure compliance with various standards and best practices, and optimize cloud infrastructure for efficiency and security.

Why Companies Need Cloud Infrastructure Audit:

Ensuring Compliance: Cloud environments must comply with various regulations and standards, and audits are essential to ensure adherence to these requirements.

Identifying Security Vulnerabilities: Cloud audits help in detecting security weaknesses within cloud configurations, access controls, and data protection mechanisms.

Optimizing Cloud Performance and Cost: Audits can reveal inefficiencies in cloud resource usage, leading to improved performance and cost optimization.

Maintaining Data Integrity and Privacy: Ensuring the protection of data stored in the cloud is crucial, and audits help in maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of this data.

Building Customer Trust: A secure and well-managed cloud environment is key to maintaining customer trust, especially for businesses that store sensitive customer data in the cloud.

Methodologies and Best Practices for Cloud Infrastructure Audit:

  • NIST 800-53 r5
  • PCI DSS v3.2.1
  • CIS
  • AWS Foundations Benchmark v1.2.0

NIST 800-53 Revision 5

This framework provides a comprehensive set of security and privacy controls for federal information systems and organizations and is a key standard for cloud security audits. It helps ensure robust security posture and compliance in cloud environments. Suitable for our US clients.

PCI DSS v3.2.1

For cloud infrastructures handling cardholder data, PCI DSS v3.2.1 compliance is crucial. This standard ensures that all entities that store, process, or transmit cardholder data maintain a secure environment.

CIS (Center for Internet Security) Controls

CIS Controls offer best practices for securing IT systems and data against cyber threats. These controls are essential for cloud infrastructure audits, ensuring the security of cloud assets against known vulnerabilities.

AWS Foundations Benchmark v1.2.0

Specific to AWS cloud infrastructure, the AWS Foundations Benchmark provides a set of security configuration best practices. It assists in auditing AWS environments to ensure they are aligned with security best practices.
