Misconfiguration of your AWS ,Azure or Google Cloud application environment is a top concern in using public cloud. Whether you are a Startup or a large organization the concern is the same and real.

Any misconfiguration can result in all sorts of risks and vulnerabilities, from internal and external actors. Risks that can seriously impact business continuity itself.

For a young startup setting up security tools incurs large costs and an overkill. Also budget and access to expertise is a constraint.

I have helped 100’s of startups avoid security breaches and ensure a secure setup. Iam sharing below one such simple step that raises the security posture of your AWS , Azure or Google cloud environment significantly.

You can enable MFA during AWS , Azure account creation. Did not do it during account setup? No issues.
