Course Description

Cloud security, also known as cloud computing security, is a group of policies, controls, procedures and technologies help keep cloud-based systems, data, and infrastructure safe and secure. In this course, participants will be introduced to concepts such as cloud computing infrastructure, cloud computing rulesand security problems related to cloud computing. Architecture and infrastructures for private, public, institutional and hybrid clouds are also covered. The course also discusses virtualization security, application security and policy and risk assessment for clouds. Contracts and agreements in clouds, grid services and remote security control, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS concepts, security models are among the topics covered as well.
