Cloud Compliance & Risk

Many organizations use the same security product on end-user-facing endpoints as they did for server workloads, a technique that often continues on during “lift and shift” cloud migrations. But cloud-native applications require different rules and techniques.


Everything depends on visibility, when on-premises information technology is moved to the cloud, the organization’s visibility could be disrupted. Cloudsec Asia provides intelligence tools and services for a complete cloud visibility. Our solution can work with a variety of cloud environments and accounts in real time and in the history to view assets, detect suspicious activities, and identify and analyze threats, allowing the organization to respond to incidents more rapidly.


The security team faces a new issue when the organization moves their information technology to the cloud. For both public and private cloud environments, the enterprise requires continuous compliance assurance. Regardless of the amount of cloud accounts, providers, or operating systems, Cloudsec Asia delivers intelligence tools and services for continuous assurance. The services identify the cloud asset, assess the state of cloud compliance, and provide an enhanced perspective of each compliance concern as well as steps to achieve compliance.


The company is migrating a large portion of its IT infrastructure to the cloud. The advancements in deployment automation have far exceeded those in security automation. Cloudsec Asia provides intelligence tools and services for cloud-native policy governance via APIs from cloud providers. The solution automates the data collecting procedure and performs primary analysis for workload and cloud analysis across several cloud accounts and providers. With this solution, the organization can manage security governance and tools automatically.


The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is the world’s foremost organization dedicated to creating and spreading best practices for securing cloud computing environments. “CSA Trusted Cloud Providers” are CSA Corporate Members that have also completed additional training and volunteer requirements with CSA and are included in the registry as CSA Trusted Cloud Providers. Meeting these criteria displays a dedication to their employees’ professional growth in order to acquire cloud security proficiency as well as a commitment to the industry as a whole. Cloudsec Asia provides auditors and consultants following the security, trust, assurance, and risk (STAR) for security assurance in the cloud.

When is the best time to do a pen test?

Your organization needs to be compliant with many global regulations. These regulations include HIPPA, PCI DSS, GDPR, ISO/IEC 27001, NIST, NERC, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), and more. In many cases, the same regulations that apply to your on-premises environment also apply to the cloud. However, many regulations relate specifically to your cloud controls.

What about public clouds? How do you ensure AWS compliance and Azure compliance?

Public clouds offer some basic capabilities. The top cloud providers have many certifications that they meet global compliance requirements, such as ISO 27001, PCI DSS, HIPAA, FedRAMP, and more. But cloud compliance is not simply the responsibility of cloud providers. Cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure give organizations control of their security controls. Organizations have a “shared responsibility” to ensure compliance over their entire hybrid and multi-cloud network. Each vendor has details about the security services that they offer, as well as their compliance posture.

What is Best Practices for Risk Mitigation?
  • Develop company-wide cloud usage and permission policies.
  • Require multi-factor authentication.
  • Implement data access governance.
  • Enable centralized logging to make it easy for investigators to access the logs during an incident.
  • Implement data discovery and classification.
  • Enable user behavior analytics.
  • Establish data remediation workflows.
  • Implement data loss prevention (DLP).
  • Outsource breach detection by using a cloud access security broker (CASB) to analyze outbound activities.
