Ensuring Cloud Compliance Against Security Frameworks

JupiterOne's Compliance Dashboard allows organizations to assess their cloud security and compliance postures against various security frameworks.

Track Cloud Asset Compliance Against Various Security Frameworks

As organizations mature and their cloud environment complexity grows, it becomes increasingly difficult to ensure cloud asset compliance on security frameworks like SOC 2, CIS or NIST.

Visibility into what exists within your cloud and non-cloud digital environment is critical for security assurance, but visibility only happens when you can quickly and confidently discover new assets and their relationships with other resources.

JupiterOne automates asset discovery from your cloud (AWS & Azure) and DevOps tools. These assets and their meta details are mapped to each other on a graph of your environment. With JupiterOne’s Compliance Dashboard, these assets can be mapped to Security and Cloud Compliance frameworks for continuous compliance monitoring.

Easily spot gaps in your cloud asset compliance posture and produce up-to-date evidences for security assessments and audits for dozens of cloud security and compliance frameworks in a single view.

NIST CSF

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework consists of standards, guidelines, and best practices to manage cybersecurity-related risk in an effort to promote the protection and resilience of critical infrastructure.

HIPAA

Frequently asked cloud compliance and security framework questions

Each cybersecurity framework was created independently of each other by different groups or organizations. so while the intent of being secure may be functionally the same, the way in which each is measured can be different. That means, while there is certainly overlap in a number of statutes within each framework, there are distinct differences. Just like not all rectangles are squares, compliance in one doesn’t necessarily translate into compliance in another. It’s important to dig deeper into each specifically to understand expectations.

It would be admirable to have your operations compliant in every security framework, but it doesn’t mean you are necessarily more secure. In fact, adopting several different frameworks without a specific purpose could result in a fair amount of confusion from your team and leave you with a tremendous amount of documentation with which to keep up. It is a lofty objective but could prove unrealistic and unnecessary when it comes to being your most secure. Remember, the goal shouldn’t be to check the box on a framework but instead focus on being your most secure. That said, to operate in specific industries there may be some requirements.

Keep in mind that achieving compliance or becoming certified is less about the moment in time and more about sustainability. These frameworks do a great job of outlining processes and policies, but security is more than just a document. Digital landscapes are evolving and growing quickly, and scalability of enforcement gets increasingly difficult. In order to manage the complexity, it is becoming increasingly critical to simplify security operations so it can grow with you.
