Threat Stack Blog Series: Starting Your Cloud Security Journey

More and more companies are migrating to the cloud — and for good reason considering the many benefits such as speed, flexibility, and reduced costs.

One of the key questions that always comes up in this transition centers on cloud security. Not so much in the form of “Is the cloud secure?” but more in terms of “What is your company doing to make sure its infrastructure is secure?”

In the best scenario, companies include a cloud security service in their business plan on day one. In the worst case, they limp along for years without a strategically planned, comprehensive security roadmap that will provide real protection for their IP, data, systems, customers, and reputation.

In both cases, these organizations have one thing in common: Regardless of how long they’ve been in business, they are at an early stage of cloud security maturity. They are just starting out on their cloud security journey.

And that’s where we can help.

Getting Started With Cloud Security

If you’re at an early stage in terms of cloud security, you’ll want to tune into our upcoming Cloud Security Maturity Blog Post Series. It’s designed for organizations that are new to cloud security (whether you’re a rapidly growing startup or an enterprise organization), and its purpose is to help you create a framework that will let you plan and implement a security program that will address your most important current needs — and also form the foundation of a program that will scale and evolve as your business grows and changes.

In this series, we’re going to address issues that are at the forefront of our customers’ security roadmap, from where to get started, to what priorities to focus on, and how to break down the entire, sometimes overwhelming subject into manageable steps that you can roll out on your own. We’ll also highlight how you can start measuring results right away, to ensure that your investment in security pays off immediately.
