Overview/Description

Cloud services vary in size and complexity, and deployed architecture carries a direct impact on service and data asset security. In this 15-video course, learners explore aspects of cloud computing architectural design, along with associated cloud systems and components. Begin by looking at cloud component definitions and various cloud system participants: consumers, providers, partners, auditors, and regulators. Next, view operational characteristics of cloud computing: on-demand, self-service, broad network access, multi-tenancy, rapid elasticity and scalability, resource pooling, and measured service. Look at supporting architectural components and infrastructure of cloud computing such as virtualization and storage. Examine details of Cloud Computing Activities with reference to ISO/IEC 17789, clause 9. Learn how cloud service categories are based on supported services and capabilities such as application, platform, and infrastructure capability types, and examine cloud deployment categories and models. Learn about the responsibility of cloud services between customers and providers. Explore the impact of technologies such as machine learning, and examine business requirements and contracts and aspects of vendor and contract management. A final exercise covers supply chain management. This course will help a learner prepare for the (ISC)2 Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) exam.
