Bishop Fox Cloud Penetration Testing Methodology

Overview of Bishop Fox’s methodology for cloud security reviews.

Cloud Penetration Testing Methodology Card

Improve your cloud security posture across Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure.

Bishop Fox’s cloud penetration testing methodology combines configuration review with penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities in cloud environments, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure.

These assessments are meant to simulate the threat of someone with access to your cloud environment, whether that is a compromised user, a compromised application, or a similar use case. The assessments are time boxed and focus on demonstrating the real-world impact of misconfigurations. To accomplish this, the team attempts to achieve specific engagement objectives, such as obtaining privileged cloud credentials, gaining control over key services, or acquiring sensitive business data.
