There is a lot of hype and uncertainty around cloud security, but this class will slice through the hyperbole and provide students with the practical knowledge they need to understand the real cloud security issues and solutions. The Cloud Security Hands-On class provides students comprehensive coverage of cloud security fundamentals and prepares them to take the Cloud Security Alliance CCSK version 4 exam (it helps that we wrote the book). Starting with a detailed description of cloud computing, the course covers all major domains in the latest Guidance document from the Cloud Security Alliance, background on the CSA CCM and CAIQ tools, and the recommendations from the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA). This class is geared towards security professionals, but is also useful for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of cloud security. (We recommend attendees have at least a basic understanding of security fundamentals, such as firewalls, secure development, encryption, and identity management).
We also include extensive hands-on activities integrated into the training. Students will learn to apply their knowledge as they perform a series of exercises as they complete a scenario bringing a fictional organization securely into the cloud.
This expanded material includes additional lecture, although student’s will spend most of their time assessing, building, and securing a cloud infrastructure during the exercises.
