Self-Paced Online Certificate Description:
This suite of five related courses covers various aspects of securing cloud services. Its structure is based on the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) certification administered jointly by the Cloud Security Alliance and (ISC)2. Each course is comprised of two modules. The first provides content related to the course subject matter. The second module engages the learner with real-world scenarios in which he or she must apply the content of the first module. This bundle is designed for adult learners who are interested in gaining an introduction to information technology security. Some understanding of basic IT concepts is helpful. Individual courses included in this bundle are listed below.
Courses Included in this Certificate Program:
Cloud Data Security: This course is comprised of two modules. The first addresses many of the important concepts of cloud-based data and the security responsibilities of both cloud consumers and cloud service providers. The second module offers a series of scenarios that relate to cloud data security to ensure you have mastered the material.
Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Security: This course is comprised of two modules. The first addresses many of the challenges for both cloud consumers and cloud service providers in securing the infrastructure and platforms used in cloud computing. The second module offers a series of real-world scenarios designed to give learners a sense for how the concepts might be applied in their everyday work. This course is designed for IT professionals and other adult learners who have some knowledge of internet-related technology.
Cloud Operations Security: This course begins by covering security issues with regard to operating cloud services. While it covers many aspects relevant to a cloud service provider, it should be particularly valuable to helping cloud consumers understand how security responsibilities may be divided between consumer and provider. The second module engages the learner with real-world scenarios that represent the challenges to securing cloud operations. This course is designed for IT professionals and other adult learners who have some knowledge of internet-related technology.
A Managers Guide to Cloud Computing and Cybersecurity: This course provides an overview of cloud computing and the business and security considerations of transitioning to a cloud environment or from one cloud service provider to another. The course is presented in two modules. In addition to providing information that aligns with industry standard content from the Cloud Security Alliance, this course also includes a module that presents different real-world scenarios to learners, asking them to apply what they have learned to situations they might encounter in the workplace.
Application Development for Cloud Computing: This course is intended to provide professionals who have some technical experience an overview of the application development process, how it applies to cloud computing, and the prevalent security concerns related to todays applications. It is not a software engineering course and does not require any programming knowledge. The content of this course covers much of the Application Security domain developed by the (ISC)2 and Cloud Security Alliance as part of the Cloud Computing Security Practitioner (CCSP) exam and certification. Further, the course also incorporates content that may be found on the CompTIA Cloud+ exam. As such, it should serve as useful preparation for anyone pursuing these certifications.
