Regardless of what public cloud environment you are deploying, your IT department remains responsible for the governance and security of organisational data stored within it, which means you must ensure that you are adequately managing and safeguarding same. This process, however, can become difficult if services are deployed without following an approved framework.
The coronavirus pandemic has undoubtedly heightened this risk and complicated matters as organisations deployed workloads in haste to public clouds, such as Azure, to resolve business critical issues and enable remote access to applications for all employees working from home.
Simultaneously, shadow IT created new headaches for teams as employees started using their own hardware and sometimes signing up for “easy-to-deploy” cloud services without notifying the IT department.
As a result, organisational data may have been moved to an Azure environment without IT undertaking the usual risk assessments to fully understand the potential impact of these services on security, compliance and costs.
If you are concerned about how you are governing and securing your Azure environment, or are worried about receiving a shock bill due to unaccounted subscriptions, we can help you by undertaking an audit of your cloud environment and assessing it against a number of crucial elements.
