Course Introduction and Security Basics
Governance, Compliance and Risk
The course is part of this learning path
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. This Course takes a deep dive into cloud security and how to mitigate the risks facing cloud-based infrastructure.
