Cloud Pen Testing Whitepaper

As organizations shift more of their data storage and processing to the cloud, they need to account for the unique risks inherent to cloud infrastructure. For example, identity and access management (IAM) and third-party risk management (TPRM) become more complicated in a cloud environment. Cloud penetration testing is one of the best ways to identify potential threats and see how they might play out in real-time to prevent them from compromising your data.

 

But what is cloud pen testing? How does it work?

Cloud pen testing uses the “ethical hacking” approach of simulating an attack on your systems, but it focuses specifically on your cloud deployment and any data or processes that contact it. As with any pen test, it works by carefully planning out the attack, conducting it, reporting on findings, and using them to optimize defenses and ensure that a real-world attack won’t happen.

Read our one-minute whitepaper for an overview of the process—and more!
