Cloud Computing Security Essentials: Risk Management Approach 2 days

Although there are many benefits to cloud computing, it is not without its own challenges. Traditional computing models have permitted a high degree of control over compute resources. Cloud computing, by virtue of abstraction, prevents the consumer from having the same level of influence over the computing resource.

Security is a priority concern for many cloud customers – customers will make buying choices on the basis of the reputation for confidentiality, integrity and resilience, and the security services offered by a provider, more so than in traditional environments. This is a strong driver for cloud providers to improve their security practices and compete on security.

The most significant barriers to entry for the adoption of cloud computing is the impact of security and the protection of information assets in the cloud.

Thus, for the security, IT, or business professionals pursuing the adoption of cloud solutions, it is important to understand what differentiates cloud solutions, what is relevant from a data protection and privacy context, what are the potential legal and compliance implications, and carry out cloud security risk assessment tasks.

Security is crucial as organizations transition to cloud computing technology. You must address cyber security management challenges and maintain regulatory compliance when moving sensitive data to a cloud environment. This cloud security training course provides an in-depth, hands-on experience identifying and resolving security issues and challenges mentioned above.
