Even if your organization recognizes the value in choosing Google Cloud for its well documented security track record, migrating from one cloud to another can be daunting. But it doesn’t have to be! If you’re looking to maximize your security profile and are hesitating to make the leap, it can be helpful to consider improving security as an easy, three-step process.
First, start by thoroughly addressing your cloud security profile. You’ll want a 360-degree understanding of your users, permissions, and potential vulnerabilities, with expert recommendations on what and how to improve. With SADA’s POWERPLAN Cloud Security Assessment, you’ll get guidance from a dedicated team, including a Senior Cloud Security Engineer and a Project Manager, who will evaluate your current configurations and platform controls, provide detailed recommendations, and present best practices to reduce risk and confront common threats.
The Cloud Security Assessment equips you with knowledge and best practices over a 5-week engagement that’s tailored to your particular business. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all security strategy, so recommendations are customized to fit your particular business model and industry, with plenty of time built in for you to address the issues most important to you.
