CyberSecurity Review Resources for SaaS / PaasS & Other IT Solution

This post collects some useful resources to have a proper CyberSecurity review to any SaaS, PaaS, and other IT solutions.

The security architecture review (SAR) evaluates your organization's security capabilities to ensure deployed technologies are aligned with relevant compliance requirements.

The results of the security architecture review will provide a robust report showing how your organization stands with regard to its current foundation of security infrastructure investments.

Minimum Security Standards for SaaS and PaaS from Standord Unviersity

Minimum Security Standards for IaaS

Note: https://uit.stanford.edu/guide/securitystandards/iaas

Minimum Security Standards:

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Containerized Solutions

Applicability:

  1. The minimum security standards found here apply to IaaS managed services — virtual servers that are designed to be ephemeral — and containerized solutions.
  2. All other persistent virtual servers, regardless of infrastructure, are to be managed under the Minimum Security Standards: Servers guidelines.
StandardsWhat to doLow RiskModerate RiskHigh Risk
Platform Selection

Follow the Stanford cloud solution selection workflow found at Choosing and Purchasing a Cloud Solution.

Patching and Application Lifecycle
  1. Apply high severity security patches within seven days of release.
  2. Apply all other security patches within 90 days.
  3. Use a supported operating system and application version.
  4. Use machine images only from trusted sources.

Additional Elaboration:

  • Managed Services — For managed services like Amazon RDS or Google Cloud SQL, define a maintenance window that meets the standard.
  • Ephemeral Servers and Containers — If using an automated system to build fully patched machine images, ensure that the patched image, or container base layer, is in use in your environment within the window of time specified in the MinSec standard.
Required for Low Risk DataRequired for Moderate Risk DataRequired for High Risk Data
Vulnerability Management

Based on National Vulnerability Database (NVD) ratings: Identify and remediate severity 4 and 5 CVE vulnerabilities within seven days of discovery, and severity 3 vulnerabilities within 90 days.

Stanford provides and recommends the Qualys toolset (which includes the Qualys Cloud Agent), however platform specific tools such as Amazon Inspector and Google Cloud Security Scanner may be used instead.

If a detection tool other than Qualys is used, ISO may request a review and audit of your tool and practices as well as periodic verification of efficacy.

Additional Elaboration:

  • Managed Services — Qualys scanning may be omitted on infrastructure provider managed services, however if the platform provides a native vulnerability detection capability, it should be implemented.
  • Ephemeral Servers — Build machine images that contain the appropriate agent, or bootstrap the installation and configuration of the agent using the management tools specific to your implementation.
  • Containerized Solutions — Scan image for CVEs using CLAIR, Anchore, private DockerHub scan, or similar tool.
Required for Low Risk DataRequired for Moderate Risk DataRequired for High Risk Data
Inventory and Asset Classification

Review and update department/MinSec Cloud inventory records quarterly. Must indicate associated risk classification and service ownership.

Additional Elaboration:

  • Ephemeral Servers — Systems designed for a lifespan no greater than 7 days (commonly those in autoscaling worker groups) should be inventoried as a single application.
  • Managed Services — Infrastructure managed services like Amazon RDS or Google Cloud SQL should be inventoried as applications.

A Step-by-step Guide to Conducing Security Architecture Review

Note: Ezoic Flickify AI generated scripts. 


1. Introduction: Why a Comprehensive Security Architecture Review is Necessary

In today's digital age, protecting your assets is more important than ever before. With the increasing number of cyber threats and data breaches, it is crucial to have a strong security posture in place. One way to ensure this is by conducting a comprehensive security architecture review. This process involves assessing your current security measures, identifying potential vulnerabilities and threats, developing a plan for improving security, implementing changes, and monitoring progress. By taking these steps, you can better protect your assets and maintain a strong security posture. In this article, we will guide you through each step of the process to help you conduct a successful security architecture review.

2. Assessing Your Current Security Measures

Before you can begin to improve your security measures, it's important to assess your current setup. This involves taking a close look at all of the systems and processes that make up your security architecture. 

Start by reviewing your existing security policies and procedures. Are they up-to-date and comprehensive? Do they cover all potential threats and vulnerabilities? Are they being followed consistently across your organization?

Next, evaluate your physical security measures. This includes things like access controls, surveillance cameras, and alarm systems. Are they functioning properly? Are they positioned in the most effective locations? Are there any blind spots or areas where security could be improved?

You'll also want to review your network security measures. This includes firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and antivirus software. Are they up-to-date with the latest patches and updates? Have they been configured correctly to provide maximum protection? Are there any gaps in your network security that need to be addressed?

Finally, take a look at your personnel security measures. This includes background checks, training programs, and employee awareness campaigns. Are your employees aware of their role in maintaining security? Are they following best practices for password management and data handling? Are there any areas where additional training or awareness efforts are needed?

By thoroughly assessing your current security measures, you'll be able to identify areas where improvements are needed and develop a plan for strengthening your overall security posture.

3. Identifying Potential Vulnerabilities and Threats

Once you have assessed your current security measures, the next step is to identify potential vulnerabilities and threats. This involves examining all aspects of your organization's operations, including physical security, network security, and employee behavior. 

One common vulnerability is outdated software or hardware that may no longer receive security updates. This can leave your systems open to exploitation by hackers who are constantly searching for weaknesses to exploit. Another potential threat is phishing attacks, where employees are tricked into giving away sensitive information or clicking on malicious links.

Physical security is also an important consideration. Are there any areas of your facility that are not properly secured? Are there any access points that could be exploited by unauthorized individuals? These are just a few examples of the types of vulnerabilities that should be identified during a comprehensive security architecture review.

It's important to note that identifying vulnerabilities and threats is not a one-time event. As technology and tactics evolve, new vulnerabilities will emerge. That's why it's crucial to regularly conduct security reviews and stay up-to-date on the latest threats and best practices for mitigating them.

4. Developing a Plan for Improving Security

Once you have identified potential vulnerabilities and threats in your current security measures, it's time to develop a plan for improving security. This plan should address the specific weaknesses that were identified and include actionable steps for addressing them. 

It's important to prioritize the most critical vulnerabilities and threats first, as well as consider the cost and resources required for each step of the plan. You may need to involve multiple departments or teams within your organization to ensure that all aspects of security are adequately addressed.

Your plan should also include timelines for implementing each step and clear metrics for measuring progress. This will help you stay on track and ensure that improvements are being made effectively.

It's important to note that a comprehensive security architecture review is not a one-time event. Your plan for improving security should be an ongoing process that is regularly reviewed and updated as new threats emerge or changes are made to your organization's infrastructure. By continuously monitoring and improving your security posture, you can better protect your assets and reduce the risk of a security breach.

5. Implementing Changes and Monitoring Progress

After developing a plan for improving security, it's time to implement the changes and monitor progress. This is where the rubber meets the road, and it's important to stay focused on the end goal of protecting your assets.

First, prioritize the changes that need to be made based on their potential impact and feasibility. Start with the most critical changes and work your way down the list. Make sure to involve all stakeholders in the implementation process, including IT staff, security personnel, and any third-party vendors.

Once the changes have been implemented, it's important to monitor progress and measure the effectiveness of the new security measures. This can be done through regular audits, vulnerability scans, and penetration testing. It's also important to stay up-to-date on emerging threats and adjust your security posture accordingly.

Remember that security is an ongoing process, not a one-time event. Regularly review and update your security measures to ensure that they remain effective and aligned with your organization's goals and objectives. By taking a proactive approach to security, you can protect your assets and maintain a strong security posture over the long term.

6. Conclusion: Maintaining a Strong Security Posture

In conclusion, conducting a comprehensive security architecture review is crucial for protecting your assets. By assessing your current security measures, identifying potential vulnerabilities and threats, developing a plan for improving security, implementing changes, and monitoring progress, you can maintain a strong security posture. Remember that security is an ongoing process, and it's important to regularly review and update your security measures to stay ahead of emerging threats. With a proactive approach to security, you can minimize the risk of security breaches and protect your assets from harm.
