Cloud Computing Security Course

Some great news for technology professionals working with Cloud Computing. Learning Tree is developing a new course titled Securing the Cloud: Hands-On. This welcome addition to the Cloud Computing curriculum covers all those difficult aspects cloud computing raises from a security and disaster recovery perspective.

Questions I am repeatedly asked when teaching the Cloud Computing course include :

  • Is the cloud secure ?
  • How do I ensure my data can always be accessed in the cloud ?
  • How do I secure my server instances in the cloud ?
  • Can I restrict access to members of my organisation to my cloud computing accounts on Amazon EC2 ?

These are just a sample of the types of questions I get asked. Another is “Is cloud security different from standard IT security?”. The new course being developed by Learning Tree aims to answer these questions. The focus of the course is very specifically on Cloud Computing security – that is, those features of security that are new or specific to cloud computing as against traditional computing security. Traditional computing security is already covered by the existing security curriculum. The security requirements of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS are considered, analysed and best of breed solutions provided.

Anybody who is working with Cloud Computing must consider the security requirements and implications. This course will provide those professionals with the skills they require to secure their environments. The first run is on December 8th in Washington DC (Reston, VA).
