Overview/Description

Fundamental to cloud service security are the construction and design of secure data centers and their hosted hardware and systems. Explore how to implement, operate, and manage physical and logical cloud infrastructure. This 16-video course can be used in preparation for the (ISC)2 Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) exam. Key  concepts covered in this course include: how to recognize security configuration requirements such as basic input/output system (BIOS), settings for Trusted Platform Module (TPM), keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) switches, hardware security module (HSM), storage and network controllers; techniques to secure network configuration and network support tools including virtual local area network (VLAN), Transport Layer Security (TLS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Authorized DHCP, Domain Name System (DNS), and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec); the deployment of network security-related controls, including firewalls, intrusion detection system (IDS), intrusion prevention system (IPS), honeypot deployment, and vulnerability assessment/threat mitigation; connect to a Azure Linux virtual machine (VM) using Secure Shell (SSH); and how to enable Azure VM metric alerts, on-premises file server cloud backup, and VM cloud backups.
