Sonrai’s Guide to Cloud Security Compliance Pain Points
Passing audits and meeting compliance standards is a beast any enterprise with good security ‘ethics’ faces. Different industries and different sized businesses face different requirements, but some consistencies remain true: it requires airtight identity and access management and a proactive approach to security maintenance.
Knowing what you need to do doesn’t make the execution any easier. We’ve seen first hand the trials and tribulations of passing audits with customers and prospects – unintended entitlements undetected from traditional IAM tooling, created cloud roles associated with an identity that are not tracked in Azure Active Directory, and the inability to answer who and what could access business critical applications.
The risks associated with these struggles are hefty violation fines, breaches in customer privacy, and a loss of trust, reputation and business continuity.
At a high-level, the pain points we’re seeing most frequently, and you may even experience yourself are:
- Pain point #1: Identities, access, and permissions in the cloud are confusing and complex. The tools I have today do not present a complete and accurate picture of access, making it difficult to confidently and accurately respond to audit questions. I risk not passing audits, and incurring fines.
- Pain point #2: Internal audits and addressing compliance regulation is time consuming. Internal resources are pulled away from valuable business-critical work to address audit requirements and questions.
- Pain point #3: The changing nature of the cloud increases the difficulty of maintaining compliance. I am not confident that I can maintain compliance.
We’re at the forefront of solving these challenges for customers, but we wanted to extend the reach of compliance and audit best practices so we’ve made a guide.
