Cloud Security

Case Study Oil and Gas

A chemical manufacturing company uses Apex's Cybersecurity capabilities to revamp their cloud security program that aligns with strict regulatory frameworks.

SITUATION

Our client, a highly regulated organization, with global IT across US, Germany, Scotland, Japan, needed to revamp their cloud security program. Existing issues that needed to be addressed included:

  • Not being able to audit account access 
  • Audit trail
  • Preventing corporate data residing on personal devices
  • Encrypting data stored in approved cloud
  • Preventing regulated data from being stored in any cloud

Our client is also subject to NIST 800-171 and GDPR compliance requirements and will required to have CMMC alignmentstarting in 2020, so our solution had to meet all standards for each of those regulations.
