Step 2: Conducting a Security and Threat Assessment for AWS | stackArmor “Security by Design“

Establishing a strong cybersecurity and compliance program is critical to ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of digital assets. The cloud makes this easy due to readily available tools and automation services. Organizations looking to adopt security standards like FISMA, FedRAMP, HIPAA, PCI-DSS or NIST Cybersecurity Framework need to follow a “Security By Design” methodology right from the beginning to avoid costly remediations later.

stackArmor’s Security by Design methodology includes three key steps:

1. Creating a compliant application and data architecture that uses certified cloud services.

2. Conducting a security and compliance assessment

3. Continuous monitoring and management.

As part of Step 2, you can start by actually doing a simple, and rapid Security and Threat Self-Assessment in 10 minutes or less. stackArmor’s cybersecurity and cloud architecture experts have this initial assessment tool to help benchmark and assess your current state.
