Cloud Security Services

As we head into 2021, enterprises are looking to shed the limitations of a traditional enterprise and move to a model that is flexible, accessible, and yet scalable. Irrespective of the kind of business, digital or brick and mortar, enterprises across the industry spectrum are putting together plans to transform their businesses to take advantage of cloud-based capabilities to make them more and more agile and responsive to addresses future risks. At CMS IT we believe this is the new normal.

With cloud adoption increasing at an exponential rate, cybercriminals are not far behind. Cybercrimes cost an unprecedented $6 trillion in 2020! And the most common root cause is unmanaged change. Cybersecurity in the face of change brings forth a few challenges –

Operational Complexity

Most business systems have developed years, even decades without a specific focus on adaptability and resilience and hence they have unknown complexity and intertwined operations that take time to understand, untangle, and improve. Defensible Cybersecurity reviews existing communication and data flows and builds solutions that ease Cloud Transformation.

Unmanaged Change

- Business cycles associated with market changes, mergers & acquisitions, and especially disruptions like COVID19 takes a toll on operational procedures. Some enterprises introduce time-bound projects that consume resources and attention, while some others end up with unplanned expenses due to exposure to cyber-attacks. Because cloud transformation is often not time-bound; and rather, because it moves at a pace driven by the organization’s level of acceptance and readiness, Defensible Cybersecurity provides value to leadership because it allows for adaptive controls.

Increasingly stringent Regulatory Landscapes

– Most critical information infrastructure industries, like finance, energy, transportation, defense, and many others continue to see continuous changes in regulations and increasing penalties. Combine that with increasingly complex cyber-attacks and it is today one of the biggest challenges in Cloud Transformation.

With its core focus on change adaptability, Defensible Cybersecurity is uniquely positioned to arm its clients with the ability to protect against, detect and respond to cyber-attacks that can disrupt Cloud Transformation.  Defensible Cybersecurity is a standards-based end-to-end cybersecurity program that is a holistic approach to address cybersecurity challenges, aligned to the context of business, addressing systemic issues, challenges, and stakeholder requirements, designed to handle constant change while continuously improving operational controls, designed to address cybersecurity risks for both traditional & digital businesses and their supply chains.

Defensible Cybersecurity addresses 3 main challenges that enterprises face when transforming their businesses using Cloud Solutions.

Protect

Information protection and its design requires careful consideration and cloud security solutions for protection falls into the following categories –

CMS IT Services realizes that selecting the right solution for your Cloud Transformation initiative is key to your success when handling cyber disruptions and that is exactly why Defensible Cybersecurity suggests that you review your cybersecurity controls using 7 distinguishable points of control.

Detect

The most essential tool to address change is to have a formal program that can monitor and detect the change and act instantly to make necessary corrections. CMS IT recommends considering a “Detect” solution, as soon solutions and mechanisms to Protect are established.

Nearly all successful attacks on cloud services are the result of customer misconfiguration, mismanagement, and mistakes.” — Neil MacDonald, Gartner analyst

On a constantly changing cybersecurity landscape, monitoring and detection of the applications, their underlying infrastructure, service dependencies and Cloud Compliance is absolutely critical to be ahead of the cyber attackers. CMS IT recommends 5 key capabilities in every detection program.

Respond

While Detect solutions like XDR or eXtended Detection and Response include capabilities to respond to the Indicators of Attack (IoA) and the Indicators of Compromise (IoC), any cybersecurity attack needs a more formal coordinated response capability.

Most standards and regulations insist the Cybersecurity Response capabilities must be considered before, during, and after a cybersecurity attack. CMS IT Services provides services to prepare for, respond to, withstand and recover from a cyber-attack, use the Integrated Cybersecurity Command Center to build pre-emptive response, command, and control and threat hunting as may be required to address threats.

Partnerships and Alliances
