Data Security and Essential Cloud Application

Today, more and more organizations store data and its governance framework on the “cloud,” which is better suited and more adaptable to the IT storage needs of many organizations. Cloud storage also enables more secure backup systems and greater storage capacity, all at a more affordable cost.

However, even with cloud storage, organizations have to remain vigilant in guarding against infiltration and data theft. In short, cloud or not, security remains a vital concern.

In this course, you’ll learn to navigate the various cloud-supplier models, including software service providers; ex: Software as a Service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service provider, (Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)), and platform as a service provider (Platform as a Service (Paas)).

To make cloud storage more secure, you’ll learn and master the architecture of Cloud Native apps. In fact, “cloud computing” differs from one industry to another due to varying levels of security requirements. So, when it comes to risk management, it’s impossible to determine the adequacy of the cloud services of a given organization without understanding the context of the industry itself.

This course provides you with an overview of the cloud storage/computing environment and infrastructures and teaches you to identify and master them according to your professional requirements. You’ll also gain a deeper understanding of your organization’s context to ensure an optimal level of cybersecurity.

In terms of specific content, you’ll learn and master the following operations.

Application of the Concepts of Basic Infrastructure

Applying the concepts of basic infrastructure will help you safeguard cloud-data storage for your organization.

Alignment of Services with the Specific Needs of Organizations

Adapting infrastructures to the specific needs of any organization is the best way to provide for their data storage requirements while ensuring optimal security of their assets.

Expertise in Application Security Concepts

Gaining practical expertise in application security concepts in a cutting-edge cloud system will ensure increased security of an organization’s assets.

Optimisation of Security Solutions

Deploying security solutions to a cloud storage system tailored to the specific needs of an organization guarantees optimal results.

This course focuses specifically on the acquisition of the knowledge required to manage the security of data storage in the cloud to prevent or at least minimise the risk of a breach and possible data theft.
