Cloud computing has many dimensions but security considerations overall can be grouped into three meta-categories, which are covered in this Cloud Computing Security Training course, including security policies, technologies and compliance, and governance. There are also a wide array of security concerns about systems that support cloud computing, such as client, transport, and server issues, that are not specifically addressed here but are covered in other ENO Institute courses as listed in the Related Courses section above.
