A key pillar of every well-architected cloud platform is security. Managing emerging threats and new vulnerabilities present a challenge that all enterprises need to address. At the core of this is automation and good governance, as 95% of security incidents begin with human error. Whether these incidents are intentional, or the result of inadequate training or inefficient procedures, does not lessen the adverse impact, be it monetary or reputational, that enterprises would be exposed to. A common trend sees many enterprises trying to address these security challenges by simply extending their data centre practices and procedures to cloud environments. This often results in a security posture that does not meet the standards specified in the Information Security Manual (ISM) of the enterprise, leaving cloud platforms underused and hosting non-critical workloads.
Our Sourced consultants take a cloud-centric holistic approach to security that embraces established cyber security frameworks and applies them using a mix of automation, native cloud tools and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) products. This approach creates a multi-layered defense for data assets hosted on public cloud. We continuously work alongside risk and governance teams to ensure that cloud security is in step with the enterprise’s risk profile. The aim of Sourced’s security consultants is to deliver proactive solutions that meet regulatory requirements whilst leveraging the latest in cloud and security technologies. This reinforces enterprises’ confidence in fulfilling their business objectives securely on public cloud. At Sourced, we believe in cloud security being a critical element that must be embedded throughout the fabric of an enterprise. We heavily advocate for security practices and representatives being involved in major cloud transformation programs from the outset and continually work to enable and empower Security Operations teams to be at the forefront of cloud innovation.
