Participation in cloud storage and cloud computing is becoming less and less of an option and more of an industry standard. As organizations begin moving critical processes to the cloud, it is important they assess cloud providers' internal controls to ensure data integrity, availability and privacy.  In this course we discuss techniques and methodologies for evaluating cloud service providers, critical implementation procedures, security configurations and on-going monitoring practices critical to working securely in the Cloud.

This course provides you with infrastructure and control requirements to consider when moving to a cloud solution. We walk through sample cloud processes and discuss critical points of consideration. Lastly, we discuss control procedures and security measures that should be defined as part of the cloud environment.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore cloud solutions.
  • Discover cloud implementation techniques and control procedures.
  • Identify critical control points when working in the cloud.
  • Explore security configuration and on-going monitoring of the cloud environment.
