Our Approach:

Our Azure Cloud Data Protection Assessment involves developing an Assessment control document based on industry benchmark standards such as Centre for Internet Security (CIE) standards, NIST, ISO 27001, and GDPR to secure Azure in compliance with regulatory laws. Requirements are categorized under each data protection domain as People, Process and Technology. During the Assessment, Encryption Consulting security experts will perform a review of your Azure cloud infrastructure and architecture to determine the security gaps. We start off with classification of data to analyse the crown jewels and assess if any data leak prevention mechanism is existing or not such as MFA and end-point security. We make sure that Azure storage, virtual machines, virtual networks, CDNs etc have suitable data protection controls in place.
