Course Introduction and Security Basics
Governance, Compliance and Risk
The course is part of these learning paths
In the last decade the nature and complexity of security attacks have increased tremendously. From simple attacks, which focused on hacking exposed web pages; we have evolved to stealthy attacks, which focus on the hacker staying hidden for years on end inside the victim’s network with the sole purpose of stealing data. To make matters worse, more and more companies have started to store their data in the cloud, thereby transferring part of the responsibility of securing that data to the cloud service provider. Therefore these days the cloud service is entrusted with the task of providing adequate security to the data and services that it provides to customers. While making a decision to move to the cloud, the two main metrics that enterprises look at tend to be cost and security risk.
So now we come to the conclusion of the course. So what did we learn here? It is essential to know exactly where and how much security is needed for resource optimization. Risk Assessment help us in deciding the where and the how much. Asset Inventories are key to doing Risk Assessments. Security Governance decides the security stance of the organization. Security Monitoring ensures whether Security Governance is properly implemented and being adhered to. Incident Management and Root cause analysis lets us know where our security policies and procedures are faulty. Thank you.
