Cloud platforms have become integral to today's IT landscape. However, a common misconception is that simply using the cloud equates to automatic security. Contrarily, many default configurations don't align with essential standards from regulatory or compliance bodies. A significant number of users are unfamiliar with the Shared Responsibility Model, which delineates the roles of cloud providers and their customers in overseeing these setups. This confluence of misperceptions frequently leads to oversights, paving the way for data breaches stemming from cloud misconfigurations. Through our Cloud Configuration Review, not only do we identify these vulnerabilities and configuration flaws, but we also collaborate with your infrastructure team for prompt remediation.
Our approach initiates with a thorough analysis of the Cloud Platform. We commence by assessing Identity Management, while taking a close look at access controls for any potential inconsistencies. Infrastructure as Code (IaC) templates are then investigated for concealed vulnerabilities. Cloud Network Configurations are carefully audited to detect any misconfigurations or rules that could permit unauthorized entry or facilitate lateral transitions. Both stored and in-transit data protection measures are examined for any suboptimal ciphers or setup flaws. In parallel, we assess associated web interfaces and APIs for security issues, and our scrutiny extends to serverless setups and functions, hunting for potential vulnerabilities. Central to our approach is a robust evaluation of logging mechanisms, ensuring their efficacy in identifying and alerting security anomalies. With our comprehensive approach, we can successfully fortify your cloud environment against cyber intrusions.
At the end of the engagement, we deliver a comprehensive in-depth report articulating the technical findings and provides recommendations for addressing any vulnerabilities or misconfigurations that were identified. At a high-level, our report includes the following sections:
- Executive Summary
- Assessment Overview
- Detailed Vulnerabilities
- Risk Ratings
