Why Cloud Infrastructure Assessment with Bridewell?

By completing an assessment with Bridewell, organizations can ensure they have a well-implemented and closely-monitored cloud environment that is as secure as any other type of hosting environment.

Our engagements account for all types of cloud infrastructure including multi-cloud or hybrid environments, software as a service (SaaS), platforms as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as code.

Our team brings experience from previous roles as sysadmins, system architects, network engineers and developers.

 Following our engagements, Bridewell will work with your in-house security team to address identified vulnerabilities and strengthen your cyber defenses.

Key Challenges Addressed

While cloud infrastructure is increasingly common to modern organizations, it can create complexity. Cloud workloads often produce high volumes of actionable data and detailed information that can lead to compromise if implemented or configured incorrectly.  

Given the scale of the major cloud providers, organizations rightly trust them to ensure appropriate cloud security, vulnerability management and data protection. However, this can lead to security teams underestimating the importance of their role during the implementation phase and result in environments that contain vulnerabilities or misconfigurations. 

For certain industries, consumers, customers, and regulators may also require independent assurance (i.e. cloud infrastructure testing) that their business’s systems are operating securely. This cannot be done internally and thus requires a trusted penetration testing partner. 


Cloud Infrastructure Assessments

How It Works

The cloud security services we provide under each assessment, utilize an assortment of manual and automated procedures, covering: 

  • Management - Bridewell’s cloud security consultants can assess how your cloud services have been designed and managed. We will take a look at public platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, to assess your account management, privilege allocation, root account security and determine any potential risks, no matter how serious.
  • Cloud Environment - Bridewell will examine the security of your cloud instances, cover the build and management of individual machines, virtual networking components, and how effective your cloud security operations are.

We provide technical understanding, experience and bespoke solutions to allow our clients to fully benefit from cloud-based, digital environment. We also equip our clients with the knowledge and best practices to ensure their data security, risk management and cloud security posture is strong enough to deal with any potential cyber security threats.

Here are some commonly asked questions about Cloud Infrastructure Assessements. If you’d like to learn more speak to one of our team. 


Bridewell recommends you pose the following questions before you seek an assessment. If the answer to any of these is no, you could likely benefit from one. 

  1. Have security procedures and policies been updated to include cloud? 

  1. Are there compliance procedures in place for new employees, as well as those who change roles or leave? 

  1. Are all systems thoroughly vetted to industry standards? 

  1. Is your organisation using multi-factor authentication? 

  1. Is all sensitive material encrypted over public networks? 

  1. Does the cloud provider have measures in place for backups and data recovery? 

  1. Are the latest security patches being installed regularly, and tested before being deployed to live servers? 

  1. Is all sensitive information encrypted on servers at rest and in transit? 

When your organization uses cloud services, you have to meet the minimum PCI DSS compliance standards. You will need to audit where card data is stored and transmitted, how users are inputting card numbers and enforce any data loss prevention policies for transmitted cloud data. You will likely need strong password solutions for any apps your organization use to be PCI DSS compliant.
