Introduction

Cloud Security Fundamentals Training Course Hands-on

Cloud Security Fundamentals Training; The cloud is everywhere! Well, that is what the marketing folks would have us believe, anyway. Migrating systems, applications and data to the cloud presents a new set of challenges for security professionals to tackle. What kind of policies do we need, and how can we work with legal teams to incorporate language into contracts? How can we protect sensitive data with encryption, intrusion detection and prevention, and host and network access controls? Can we extend identity and access management tools and processes into the cloud?

Fundamentally, the cloud represents a move into environments where security teams are giving up some measure of control over how data and applications are protected. Due to capital and operational cost savings issues, cloud-based services are becoming more attractive to business and organization leaders, and security teams will need to understand their options when presenting the risks to management.

Our goal with Cloud Security Fundamentals Training is to arm security teams with the knowledge they need to assess risks in moving to the cloud. Managers, auditors, and systems and network administrators will also benefit, as we will delve into the technologies available for securing cloud-based assets while covering all the policies, processes and compliance considerations that go along with this major technology shift.

Cloud Security Fundamentals Training - You Will Learn:

• Foundations of cloud policy and contracts
• Cloud risks, including threats and vulnerabilities
• The 14 domains of the Cloud Security Alliance's cloud security research
• Best practices for securing multiple layers of the cloud stack
• How to adapt security architecture, tools, and processes for use in cloud environments

Everything you need to know to pass the CSA Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) exam
