Cloud is arguably among the most powerful technology forces impacting businesses. Cloud is not only reshaping individual organizations — it’s transforming entire industries across sectors and regions worldwide. Cloud accelerates the launch of new business models, deepens relationships with customers and partners, and enables migration away from legacy systems and the rapid deployment of flexible, scalable, and elastic IT infrastructure.
PwC helps clients drive shareholder value through seamless and safe cloud adoption and operations. We help clients de-risk initiatives by identifying and addressing security, privacy, and regulatory barriers. Our cloud deployments are augmented by deep business and technical experience, proven methodologies, and a strategy through execution approach.
Assign clear security roles and responsibilities between the organization and the cloud service provider. Update enterprise policies to define permissible and secure cloud consumption. Enforce policies and monitor for unsanctioned use. Develop a broad application migration strategy which considers data protection requirements.
You can’t protect what you can’t see. Extend security analytics to the cloud and develop cloud-specific use cases and detection rules. Co-develop incident response and forensics procedures with your cloud service provider. Understand your breach disclosure requirements.
Know your data and resulting regulatory and compliance, data protection and residency, enterprise, and other security requirements. Translate requirements into a reference architecture and develop cloud service provider–specific logical design and configuration patterns in support of building a secure DevOps program. Consider hybrid and multi-cloud deployment models, including identity and access management (IAM), data loss prevention (DLP), vulnerability management and other foundational enterprise capabilities.
Embed security in DevOps and CI/CD processes to achieve security at scale. Automate through template-based provisioning and configuration management, code security scanning and testing, and gain the ability to detect and remediate drifts and non-compliance. Secure your code repositories.
