Cloud Environment Security Assessment
A core benefit of a hosted cloud solution is to leverage the economies of scale in technology that could not be realized within a traditional IT environment due to budget or skillset. A key technology that can be leverage in this way is the security infrastructure. Many organizations don’t have the budget or lack the skill to implement sophisticated industry standard security infrastructures that exist in large scale data center operations. However, operating in a hosted cloud environment may allow for usage of such technology. A key requirement when operating in a hosted cloud environment is to be able to measure change in the environment as well as monitor security policy and regulatory compliance. DCS can provide the skillset necessary to develop an ongoing configuration compliance and change identification process for a cloud environment.

Auditing Regulatory Compliance for IT Systems and Policies
A key element of a secure environment is the development and implementation of an organizational security policy. The organizational security policy is driven by a risk analysis of the information systems and threats to those systems. With extensive experience designing and managing high security environments DCS can provide valuable insight in the creation, implementation, auditing, and compliance monitoring of corporate policies. Our specialization is focused on implementation of NIST 800-53 compliant systems.
