Date: 31 March 2014 (the day before the conference starts)
The CCSK training is design for IT professional and Cloud Computing stake holders who wish to better understand Cloud Computing risks, solutions and security methodology.
Security in Cloud computing is a great challenge. We all know that security, privacy and compliance are major obstacles when adopting cloud computing. But, as any other risk to the business, we need to learn how to understand the risk and manage it.
Secure-Cloud 2014 is a great opportunity to close the knowledge gap about cloud computing security. We invite all conference attendees to participate in official Cloud Security Course (CCSK certification) taken place in the day before the conference.
During the one day training we will review topics like risks and challenges at Cloud Computing environments and analyze different solutions and best practices for Data lifecycle, application and users security.
This class is broken out into 6 modules that cover the 13 domains of the CSA Guidance and the ENISA Cloud Computing: Benefits, Risks and Recommendations for Information Security.
Introduction to Cloud Computing. This module covers the fundamentals of cloud computing, including definitions, architectures, and the role of virtualization. Key topics include cloud computing service models, delivery models, and fundamental characteristics. It also introduces a model for assessing the risk of moving to the cloud.
Infrastructure Security for Cloud Computing. This modules digs into the details of securing the core infrastructure for cloud computing- including cloud components, networks, management interfaces, and administrator credentials. Students will learn the key components to public and private clouds and techniques for securing them.
Managing Cloud Security and Risk. This module covers important considerations for managing security for cloud computing. It begins with risk assessment and governance, then covers legal and compliance issues, such as discovery requirements in the cloud. It finishes with a discussion or portability and interoperability and managing incident response when working with cloud providers.
Data Security for Cloud Computing. One of the biggest issues in cloud security is protecting data. This module covers information lifecycle management for the cloud and how to apply security controls, with an emphasis on public cloud. Topics include the Data Security Lifecycle, cloud storage models, data security issues with different delivery models, and managing encryption in and for the cloud.
Application Security and Identity Management for Cloud Computing. This module covers identity management and application security for cloud deployments. Topics include federated identity and different IAM applications, secure development, and managing application security in and for the cloud.
Selecting Cloud Services. This module covers key considerations when evaluating, selecting, and managing cloud computing providers. It includes important questions to ask and what to look for. We also discuss the role of Security as a Service provider.
