Cloud Security Compliance

Cloud infrastructure is subject to a wide variety of international, federal, state, and local security regulations. Organizations must comply or face the added risks of legal challenges, penalties, and fines.

The Importance of Cloud Security Compliance

The Importance of Cloud Security Compliance

When it comes to compliance, businesses must consider varying federal and state laws that protect information security and privacy of regulated data such as health records, personally identifiable information (PII), and credit card numbers, as well as complex global and regional regulations as they apply to specific industries.

With 83 percent of enterprise workloads now in the cloud, organizations must also ensure their cloud computing infrastructure complies with all of these applicable laws and regulations covering IT governance.

Cloud Compliance Involves Multiple Clouds, Departments and Third Parties

There needs to be a system in place that streamlines compliance throughout the organization. Since “cloud” includes a variety of products and services, cloud compliance exists on multiple levels, not all of which are controlled by the same parties. Compliance, therefore not only requires collaboration across multiple departments inside an enterprise, but also must extend across multiple cloud environments.

Automating Compliance

Automating Compliance

Doing compliance checks once or twice a year is no longer enough. With the proliferation of public cloud applications, compliance teams need to automate IT compliance posture to track status and resolve issues. Cloud compliance tools and controls must meet the agile needs of cloud native deployments. An automated compliance framework will ensure compliance requirements are being met globally, no matter where that data is stored, transmitted, or accessed.

Customized Policies

Make sure the system and framework you use has a catalog of pre-built rulesets to accommodate all CSPs, as well as a way to update outdated rule sets as needed. Additionally, make sure there is an easy and clear way to create and enforce custom governance policies that are tailored to specific business needs.


Automating Compliance

Clearing Audits

It’s crucial that you are able to prove and clear audits. Ensure your solution has audit log retention and assessment reports for proof of security posture across business units, VPCs and cloud accounts.
