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 present 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.

Cloud Security Fundamentals is the ideal entry point for professionals and enterprises interested in enhancing their understanding of cloud security. You will learn about the relationship between cloud computing and cloud security, while also discovering a number of best practices commonly utilized by companies who are actively assessing cloud technologies.

Additionally, you will learn to analyze governance challenges in the cloud, ranging from jurisdictional issues, and vendor selection and assessing the outsourcing chain through investigating the various compliance standards often used by cloud service providers. Cloud Security Fundamentals will finish up with a high-level discussion about the available technologies and tools available to streamline IT and address security issues with cloud computing.
