Blockchain/Web3 Startup Blocks Gaps and Improves AWS Security Posture
Published on June 16, 2023
A blockchain/web3 startup engaged Protiviti to review their AWS environment. While getting the product to market as fast as possible was a primary goal for the client, security was an afterthought in many scenarios. To address this need and prevent a potential catastrophic security event, the client wanted a quick and consistent way to understand where their security gaps were and how they could improve their AWS security posture.
This startup is setting trends in the blockchain/web3 world, establishing its own protocol that fulfills its vision to give developers an easy path for building scalable, decentralised applications.
The client turned to Protiviti when it needed a review of its AWS environment to better understand security gaps and how to improve its security posture.
Leveraged AWS Security Hub to assess the environment’s configuration posture; reviewed the client’s governance structure and IAM posture.
Established the client’s AWS Security Hub foundation, customising foundational security best practice controls to fit the client’s unique needs.
Using AWS Security Hub, the client can identify configurations that deviate from the baseline control and tag them for remediation.
