We built this based on our cloud controls experience within the financial services industry and knowledge of Risk Management.
Infinitive brings a unique mix of experience across technology, risk management, and business transformation. Our solutions leverage each of these areas to drive comprehensive and effective solutions to secure your digital assets and remain compliant. Here are our solutions:
- Cloud Risk and Controls Maturity Assessment: Evaluate end-to-end cloud control and governance processes against best practices. Assess maturity relative to other companies in the industry. Provide recommendations for improvement.
- Cloud Control Lifecycle Support: Establish and/or enhance risk management lifecycle process to evaluate cloud risks, design and implement controls and monitor for compliance.
- Cloud Service Enablement: Create a structured approach for launching approved cloud services in a secure manner, while identifying dependencies and risks and providing alignment for stakeholders.

Infinitive’s Cloud Risk & Controls Maturity Assessment evaluates your organization’s risk management processes and cloud controls approach against our best practices framework to provide recommendations for improving your cloud risk posture. Our assessment will evaluate your organization’s current cloud controls and the cloud control lifecycle process. This will allow you to have a clear path forward to address deficiencies to gain stakeholder trust (Risk, Audit, Regulator) and have a framework to reference for future maturity self-assessments.
Infinitive’s Cloud Control Lifecycle Support solutions help organizations establish and/or enhance repeatable and sustainable processes for ongoing management of cloud-related risks. Our Cloud Control Lifecycle Framework provides a blueprint for developing an effective cloud controls program. The framework has 4 primary focus areas:
- Risk Assessment: Identify and assess risks impacting your organization, enabling proactive risk mitigation through well-defined cloud controls.
- Control Design & Documentation: Define and document controls to address your specific requirements, drafting standardized control language for implementation.
- Control Implementation & Validation: Implement the controls, validate that they run as intended and publish standardized control language to your system-of-record.
- Control Monitoring & Exceptions Tracking: Monitor controls to ensure compliance and actively manage remediation for non-compliant instances. Create a standardized exceptions process to accept risks for non-compliant resources that will not be remediated in the short-term.
This solution will help your company identify potential vulnerabilities, ‘blind spots’, and solutions by evaluating risk(s). It will also reduce risk of non-compliance by reviewing documentation against relevant regulations, improve performance by identifying underperforming or overutilized resources, and decrease communication and control drift through cross-functional alignment.
