Cloud Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Management 

Independent configuration reviews and penetration testing can deliver the findings that are the ultimate gauge of your cloud security defenses. Kroll’s team of offensive security experts will approach your environment from an attacker’s perspective to identify any weaknesses in your cloud applications or infrastructure. Remediation guidance will incorporate the business requirements of a system and present approaches that leverage the vast security features available from Cloud Services Providers, to provide a practical strategy to defend your cloud environment. 

Our experts are experienced in using a wide variety of assessment tools as well as manual attack techniques to uncover weaknesses that are often missed in cloud services. Coupled with industry certified penetration testing experts, we bring real-world tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) typically deployed by successful criminals to compromise cloud services.

Cloud Incident Response Management and Planning

Kroll’s digital forensics experts investigate hundreds of cloud security incidents annually. Our decades of investigative incident response experience and advanced intelligence collection and correlation enable us to respond quickly, efficiently, and effectively.

Kroll understands that a major concern for most clients experiencing a cloud incident is whether sensitive data was compromised. Our wealth of investigative experience and knowledge translates to unrivaled expertise in assessing and identifying files that are likely to contain sensitive data. Our team of experts also leverage advanced analytics to assist in identifying files that do not require review for sensitive data and perform statistically valid sampling to verify the results, reducing time and cost.

Cloud Migration Security Consulting

Like most businesses, you are either thinking about migrating to the cloud or increasing operations in the cloud. The flexibility and cost savings are a competitive advantage that you cannot pass up. However, to avoid the time, money and reputational costs of a data breach, as well as to save time and money through the course of the migration, you need to plan carefully and ask the right cloud migration security questions

Kroll's Cloud Security Architecture Advisory helps secure organizations moving their infrastructure to the cloud. Kroll subject matter experts will assist organizations to improve their cloud security posture and reduce risk in newly developed cloud environments such as Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and more. The services offer the opportunity to have access to a dedicated security advisor and a team of highly skilled security professionals for a set number of hours  throughout the year.

Remote Work Security

The rise of remote work has meant that risk and security leaders are presented with an interesting challenge: How to maintain seamless employee productivity while actively evaluating physical and cyber security controls to ensure data remains protected within the cloud environment? Hurdles generated by remote work include the use of VPNs, personal devices, cloud storage repositories, shadow IT systems and more.

We methodically review your existing and new policies for securing a remote workforce as well as interview your IT, information security, and remote workers to identify where your defenses are strong and where vulnerabilities exist that bad actors can exploit.

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.
