Improve Cloud Infrastructure Security and Reduce Risk
Cloud service providers deliver strong platforms. It’s up to each organization using them, however, to configure networking, access controls, and monitoring in a secure fashion. Since configuring cloud environments like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google is new to most organizations, many of them lack the experience to get it right the first time. Mistakes are costly, though, resulting in frequent cloud data breaches and security incidents. Even if your organization is “just experimenting” with cloud platforms and services, you are at risk.
That’s where Delta Risk can help. We have extensive experience we can share with whatever in-house teams and resources you have – or not – to get your infrastructure off to a secure start.

Wherever You’re at On Your Cloud Journey, Delta Risk Can Help
Make your move to the cloud faster and safer with Delta Risk cloud security professional services. Has your organization already adopted cloud computing, or are you in the early stages of migrating to cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Microsoft Office 365? Regardless of where you’re at in the process, Delta Risk can provide the expert advice you need to take advantage of cloud-based platforms to best meet your business needs, while improving your security programs to protect sensitive data.
Cloud services such as AWS promise to provide every aspect of computing, including the network infrastructure, user workstations, servers, software as a service (Saas), databases, and more. The appeal of cloud is clear: these environments offer powerful administrative features, pay-as-you-go prices, and a shared security model that takes some of those responsibilities off your plate. But for all the benefits, there are also some new risks and security concerns.
While traditional information technology vendors and information security consulting firms specialize in network, data center, and endpoint security, the move to the cloud necessitates new capabilities. That’s why we offer a full suite of collaborative cloud security consulting services, including cloud penetration testing, access management strategy, security risk assessments, and application security assessments.
Our cloud security services can help you determine your security risk by evaluating your infrastructure security through our AWS Assessments. We also provide security consulting for data protection best practices, disaster recovery, and helping develop your overall cloud security requirements for DevOps and in-house security teams.
If you experience a cloud security incident or data breach, our expert consultants can help you navigate the nuances of each platform and supplement your in-house resources to contain the incident and mitigate damages as quickly as possible. If you’d like to take a more proactive approach and prepare for a potential incident as part of your business continuity programs, we also offer red teaming and tabletop exercises.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Assessments
AWS Security Assessment
Learning a new platform and keeping up with the rapid release of new features is challenging for any organization. AWS provides a very capable cloud infrastructure solution. However, with the power comes complexity. We’ve seen from the many recent breaches that even the largest enterprises with vast security expertise are having trouble implementing AWS properly.
Delta Risk offers an AWS Security Architecture Assessment to evaluate your current approach and create a strong security foundation. Putting the right program in place now can pay dividends down the road and prevent a costly rebuild or data breach. An AWS Security Assessment is a collaborative engagement that focuses on the security assurance of your organization’s AWS environment, including a design review, threat analysis, security governance overview, and a technical review of your environment for misconfigurations and deviations from best practice. This can include either an interview-based risk assessment, a technical assessment, or a combination of both.
If you choose both an interview-based and technical assessment, we first spend time with your team to discuss and assess your AWS implementation strategy. Next, we conduct a detailed configuration assessment and design review, followed by an in-depth security configuration review. This includes review of your identity and access management controls, networking design, computing review, and storage. We’ll also survey your AWS security governance practices, and finish by delivering a custom report and AWS security best practices review, along with our expert recommendations for your organization.
Interview-Based Risk Assessment
Delta Risk will interview AWS stakeholders, such as developers and administrators, to understand your current AWS practices and the intended architecture of the AWS environment. In addition, we will review any relevant documentation, including policies, plans, and design documents. This effort will identify risks associated with deviations from best practice and the maturity of the organization’s AWS practice.
Delta Risk will perform a technical assessment of your AWS environment to identify cloud infrastructure misconfigurations, poor design implementations, and deviations from best practices. The result is a comprehensive security-focused assessmentof your implementation of AWS services. Delta Risk will run a variety of scans and perform manual inspections of in-scope AWS accounted using read-only permissions you provide.
