Course Content

  • Module 1: Introduction to Cloud Computing. This module covers the fundamentals of cloud computing, including definitions, architectures, and the role of virtualization. Key topics include cloud computing service models, delivery models, and fundamental characteristics. It also introduces a model for assessing the risk of moving to the cloud.
  • Module 2: Creating and Securing a Public Cloud Instance. This modules digs into the details of the different cloud delivery models and their basic security issues. Students will learn the differences between security responsibilities for SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS, and key questions to ask a potential provider. The instructors will also demonstrate creating and applying security to a simple cloud instance on IaaS.
  • Module 3: Managing Cloud Security and Risk. This module covers important considerations for managing security for cloud computing. It begins with risk assessment and governance, then covers legal and compliance issues, such as discovery requirements in the cloud. It finishes with a discussion or portability and interoperability and managing incident response when working with cloud providers.
  • Module 4: Securing Public Cloud Data. One of the biggest issues in cloud security is protecting data. This module covers information lifecycle management for the cloud and how to apply security controls, with an emphasis on public cloud. Topics include the Data Security Lifecycle, cloud storage models, data security issues with different delivery models, and managing encryption in and for the cloud.
  • Module 5: Securing Cloud Users and Applications. This module covers identity management and application security for cloud deployments. Topics include federated identity and different IAM applications, secure development, and managing application security in and for the cloud.
  • Module 6: Creating and Securing a Private Cloud. In this module we move from the public cloud to the private cloud. Although we tend to have more control over private clouds, that doesn't mean they are immune to security issues. Topics include security risks of private clouds, and the management and security tools available to mitigate them.
