Cloud Security

Solution Summary

Improperly configured cloud-based systems lead to privacy and cybersecurity incidents. To reduce or eliminate these issues, UIT will implement technical guardrails, establish monitoring, and build organizational expertise to prevent and/or detect misconfiguration of cloud-based systems used by Stanford.

This is pursuant to the university’s established comprehensive cloud security strategy.

Specific Goals/Objectives

  1. SaaS/PaaS Security  Periodically offer platform-specific security training for two or more key platforms (e.g., Salesforce, ServiceNow)
  2. IaaS Security   Conduct proof-of-concept of native cloud security tools in AWS and GCP that provide the ability to prevent and/or detect configurations that may lead to privacy and cybersecurity incidents
  3. IaaS/PaaS Security — Implement activity logging across centrally managed AWS and GCP instances as well as key PaaS platforms
