Cloud penetration testing is where digital assets are tested for any vulnerabilities using the cloud. This can include AWS Cloud, Microsoft Azure, or any other cloud-based services.
Biggest challenges with the cloud are data loss and data privacy
Even though cloud providers are more and more secure these days, companies are responsible for their own security and shouldn’t assume that it is covered.
Biggest Security Risks with the Cloud
- Authentication and unsolicited access
- Data theft, encryption or ransom
- Incorrect configuration of the cloud
- Insecure connections, interfaces and APIs
In some cases you need permission from your cloud host to conduct a pen test but normally not, we can advise you based on your requirements.
