Security Gap Analysis

Find and Fix Cloud Obstacles Fast with the Security Gap Assessment

You don’t know what you don’t know. And that can hurt your business.

A cloud security gap analysis is important for any organization looking to improve their security posture. But it’s essential for organizations seeking challenging security certifications and compliance goals.

With the complexities of multi-cloud environments and global operations, organizations need reliable resources and talent to get a handle on their full cloud infrastructure. That can leave you exposed to security vulnerabilities or compliance headaches.

Cybersecurity Auditing Process: Thorough and Technical

Putting your cloud through a complete security assessment can be the best way to understand where weakness lies. But that doesn’t mean it has to be a burden. A gap analysis can be done at a fraction of the cost and effort of a full-on assessment — paving the way for more downstream efficiencies in compliance, documentation, and other security needs.

38North’s proven security gap analysis services are tailored to your risk exposure profile and the level of scrutiny demanded by your industry and regulatory jurisdiction.
