NCSC 14 Cloud Principles Gap Analysis Service

Protecting your cloud deployments from cyber-attacks and security violations is absolutely essential. In the UK, the NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) have formulated 14 universal Principles to help organisations establish good cloud cyber-security.

Our NCSC Cloud Principles Gap Analysis Service is designed to discover and assess how the 14 Principles have been implemented. In this assignment, we will investigate how the NCSC 14 Cloud Principles have been interpreted and incorporated into the organisations policies, processes, technologies and operational security controls.

The NCSC 14 Cloud Principles are briefly described below together with objective of the Gap Analysis investigation undertaken:

NCSC 14 Cloud Principles

Gap Analysis audit objectives
