Security is an ongoing journey of incremental progress and maturity, and not a static destination. The Cloud Adoption Framework provides security guidance for this journey by providing clarity to the processes and best practices. This guidance is based on real world experiences of our customers, of Microsoft’s own security journey and lessons learned, and the work with other organizations like NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) or CIS (Center for Internet Security).
The outcome is manifested in the Cloud Adoption Framework Secure Methodology which provides a vision of the complete end state of your security journey and follows the Zero Trust principle (assume breach, verify explicitly, use least privilege access).
This assessment gives you the opportunity to self-assess your security journey of your cloud adoption against this secure methodology.
