The Cornerstone of Our Approach: Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)

We believe that embracing digital transformation requires a solid foundation in cloud security. As more enterprises lean into the cloud's power, we recognise the challenges of mitigating potential cyber threats while reaping the cloud's efficiency and scalability benefits. The Nightjar approach towards establishing a robust cloud security posture revolves around implementing best practices inspired by leading cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Security Threads
Our proactive stance towards cloud security contributes to our clients' growth in the cloud era.

Our emphasis on Cloud Security Posture Management stems from our commitment to secure every bit of your digital footprint, from software and infrastructure to data. By systematically monitoring and remediating security risks across all cloud resources, we build confidence among our clients, foster trust with end customers, and ensure adherence to regulatory standards.

Implementing AWS-Inspired Best Practices

At Nightjar, we ensure that our cloud security practices align with AWS's tried-and-tested protocols.

Solid Identity and Access Management (IAM) Policies
Leveraging AWS's IAM service, we enforce access control to our AWS resources. We assign unique security credentials to different users, limit access to necessary resources, enforce Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and maintain a dynamic approach in reviewing and adjusting access policies.

Data Encryption, Always
Using AWS services like AWS Key Management Service (KMS) and AWS Certificate Manager, we ensure the encryption of sensitive data, both at rest and in transit, securing it from unauthorised access.

Regular Data Backup and Restoration
We regularly backup data using AWS Backup to swiftly recover from data loss or unexpected outages. Additionally, we consistently test restore procedures to ensure their effectiveness.

Preparedness for Security Incidents
Drawing from AWS Security Incident Response Guide, we have a well-defined incident response plan that includes procedures for identifying, investigating, and addressing any security incidents.

Logging and Monitoring
We use AWS CloudTrail and Amazon CloudWatch to log, monitor, and retain account activity across our AWS infrastructure. This proactive monitoring helps us identify potential security incidents and assists in regulatory compliance reporting.

Secure Network Architecture
Using AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), we set up a private, isolated section of the AWS Cloud where we deploy resources in a secure virtual network. We use security groups and network access control lists (ACLs) to control inbound and outbound traffic at the instance and subnet level, respectively.

Consistent Security Assessments
We utilise AWS tools like AWS Security Hub, AWS Inspector, and AWS Trusted Advisor to perform regular security audits and risk assessments, allowing us to identify and address potential vulnerabilities effectively.

Our Commitment

As we help our clients transition to the cloud, Nightjar's commitment to securing their digital landscape remains unwavering. Our robust cloud security strategy, incorporating best practices inspired by AWS, ensures a secure and compliant cloud environment. Our proactive stance towards cloud security contributes to our clients' growth in the cloud era, fostering trust and confidence among their stakeholders, end customers, and meeting regulatory compliance standards.
