Kroll’s experts have a deep understanding of cloud environments and the process for securing diverse cloud deployments.

Cloud Security Assessments

Our cloud security assessments combine established security standards with customised metrics designed for a specific organisation’s cloud architecture and unique risk tolerance. As a baseline, our seasoned experts will examine the following key areas of any cloud environment:

  • External network access control
  • Internal network access control
  • Identity and access management
  • Multi-factor authentication and federated access
  • Encryption and data security
  • Backup and disaster recovery
  • Security event logging, correlation and alerting
  • Incident response planning

For clients who are considering or have chosen specific cloud services, Kroll’s cloud security risk assessments will focus on evaluating the configuration and controls for that specific deployment. Sample engagements include:


Cloud Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Management 

Independent configuration reviews and pen testing are the best tools for assessing an organisation’s cloud security defenses. Our team of experts will approach a client’s cloud environment with an attackers mindset to uncover any vulnerabilities in applications or infrastructure. They can also offer remediation guidance that will incorporate a system’s unique business requirements to present recommendations that will leverage the security features available from all major Cloud Services Providers.

Kroll’s experts can also utilise a wide range of assessment tools and manual attack techniques to expose additional vulnerabilities that are often overlooked in cloud services. Working with certified pen testing experts, our cloud security consultants can test our clients’ cloud environments using real-world tactics and strategies used by hackers to compromise cloud services.

Cloud Incident Response Management and Planning

Every year, Kroll’s digital forensics experts investigate hundreds of cloud security incidents across Singapore, Hong Kong, Asia and the world. Combined with our decades of broader incident response experience and our advanced intelligence collection practices, our team is in the best possible position to respond quickly and efficiently to any cloud security emergency.

The primary concern for most organisations dealing with a cloud security incident is securing any sensitive data within their systems. Kroll’s experts understand this, and, with their wealth of investigative knowledge and experience, they know how to quickly identify and secure files containing sensitive data.

Cloud Migration Security Consulting

Virtually all businesses are currently considering migrating to or increasing operations in the cloud to take advantage of increased flexibility and cost savings. However, for organisations hoping to avoid the added time, money and reputational damage that comes with a data breach, it is important to plan carefully and ask the right questions about security during a cloud migration.

Our cloud security consulting services offer technical expertise and resources to examine and assess every aspect of a company’s security program, including security policies, human interactions, and technology at every data touchpoint. Our collaborative and transparent approach means we will work with clients to learn the specifics of their business so we can develop a cloud security programme that is customised to meet their unique needs.

Remote Work Security

With the exponential rise of remote work, security leaders have been presented with a new challenge: How to seamlessly maintain productivity while assessing physical and cybersecurity controls to ensure data remains secure in the cloud environment. The increased use of VPNs, personal devices, cloud storage repositories, and shadow IT systems have created new obstacles for data security.

Kroll will perform a comprehensive assessment of an organisation’s programme to help them maintain security as the need for remote work increases. We will consult with IT departments and remote workers to identify a system’s strengths and uncover any vulnerabilities that can be exploited by bad actors or unaware employees.


Fortify Your Defenses and Response Resources

Cyber criminals and malicious actors are all too aware of the security gaps that can accompany a move to the cloud. Our specialists utilise their unrivaled knowledge and expertise to help clients navigate risks presented by the cloud so they can be in a better position to protect their organisation’s data and respond appropriately to a cyber incident.

Cloud Security Partners

Our experts will not simply draft a report on system vulnerabilities and leave the client to address them on their own. Instead, we become an extension of their IT and data security teams, collaborating at every point to ensure security, compliance with regulations, and, hopefully, the success of their cloud-based operations. Our services and proprietary data help our clients keep pace with the ever-changing threat landscape.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many companies think they can move their infrastructure to the cloud without making fundamental changes to their security protocols. But shifting from on-premises infrastructure to the cloud is not a trivial move. The cloud operates differently from a traditional IT environment, meaning there are unique security considerations to keep in mind. Whether you’re migrating to the cloud, operating in a hybrid cloud environment or taking a cloud-first approach, you’ll need a cloud-specific strategy to address risk.
