Cloud Risk Assessment and Security Requirements

Discovering, correcting and preventing existing security problems on an ongoing basis.

Our cyber security consultants use their expertise in security assessment, compliance, and authorization to analyze threats to cloud and on-premise systems based on their likelihood of occurrence. By combining known threats, architectural design, and the probability of occurrence with mitigation and risk transference strategies, we’re able to provide a clear representation of an organization’s risk posture.

We can do an initial risk assessment and provide services and solutions for continuous risk assessments. We have performed assessments of complex multi-level secure systems, small, dedicated systems, cloud-based services, and e-commerce systems.

Cloud services used in your enterprise information architecture must comply with the same security requirements that pertain to your on-premise systems.
