Course Overview:

Cloud computing is the use of hardware and software resources that are delivered as a service typically over the Internet. It entrusts remote services with user's data, software and computation.

Although there are numerous business advantages and opportunities offered by cloud computing in terms of improved availability, scalability, flexibility etc., it is important to tap its business potential carefully. Securing the client data in the "cloud" must be the prime concern for the cloud service provider. Legal concerns over jurisdiction of client data in “cloud” needs to be addressed properly. This is because the stored data may not reside with service provider in its own data center or at a single location.

In this Course, we are going to learn about common cloud misconfigurations, how to perform a risk assessment and verify compliance for various Cloud Services. Further, we will delve deeper into identifying security risks in these cloud services and to implement best practices to mitigate the common cloud misconfigurations. Also, we will jumpstart into the compliance aspect based on well-known standards like NIST, OWASP, Cloud Security Alliance etc., along with their automations.
