Cloud Security

Get your cloud security under control by leveraging RSM to identify and deliver pragmatic visibility and controls to your cloud data and platform solutions.

The ecosystem of components and services required to appropriately secure your organisational data and applications is growing. Every organisation now has an opportunity to dive into the use of cloud services to manage some, or all of their information technology elements which also assists in avoiding data breaches.

Cloud services have only recently matured and became price appropriate where organisation’s can choose to outsource their entire platform, infrastructure or software to cloud providers, alleviating the need to manage everything in-house.

Additionally, we provide a strategic IT roadmap for the components to support a more secure state for cloud services and platforms.

Who needs this?

Any organisation that is currently looking to move to cloud-based services, or are currently operating completely or partially within a cloud-based service can benefit from a cloud security review by RSM.
