Security > Security Advisor > Overview

Security Advisor checks the security setting status of NHN Cloud organization and project resources created by customers and provides recommendations.
You can utilize our recommended guides for a secure cloud environment.
Security Advisor is activated on a project basis, and activating the service in a specific region also activates the service in all other regions.
However, since the cloud services provided are different for each region, the inspection target and scope may vary.
