Cloud Security: Essential Knowledge for the Modern Tech Professionals.

The CSF1: Cloud Security Fundamental Level 1 course provides a brief introduction to information security risks associated with cloud computing. Students can use this course to review what they already know about cloud security and to pinpoint any gaps in their understanding. Students who are interested in working with cloud technology or who will be part of an organisation transitioning to the cloud will benefit from this course.

Our trainers have all passed a rigorous certification process and are proven security professionals with years of industry experience and multiple professional qualifications.

Cloud security is a set of rules, methods, and technologies that are meant to keep the cloud environment safe and under control. Cloud security can reduce the risks of moving to a cloud environment by using strict access controls, system audits, adherence to global security frameworks, and other measures.

For those of you who want to use Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, or Amazon Web Services, cloud security is less about setting up a secure cloud and more about using it securely. After all, these companies have already spent a lot of money to make sure their systems are safe. Still, anyone who wants to set up their own cloud needs to think about more things. These include security architecture, protecting physical infrastructure, disaster recovery, maintenance, and a stable connection.

Cloud security also helps businesses stay in line with international rules like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It can also prepare businesses for future rules, which are always being thought about. For example, to follow the GDPR, companies must make sure that their cloud was built with the right architecture and that security and privacy were taken into account throughout the design process. If they don’t, regulators may fine them a lot if a security breach happens.
