Govern your cloud platform: How to avoid embarrassing security breaches and a bill of millions

More and more companies are moving towards the cloud for their IT infrastructure. AWS (Amazon Web services) led the cloud infrastructure market, and is an attractive option for customers because of the ease and flexibility it provides around designing the architecture for their applications in the cloud.

More flexibility might lead to bad architectural designs, which could impact security and cause liability. You can avoid this by having standard compliance requirements which guide your teams on how to build secure applications on AWS.

FT’s Cloud enablement team have given all delivery teams their own AWS accounts. They have deployed a standard architecture across all the accounts to make sure that the applications and the resources in the accounts adhere to compliance requirements (best practices and security guidelines)
