Cloud Security

Cybersecurity may seem straightforward when your data is housed on your own servers, but what happens when it’s out of your hands? Cloud Security prepares you with the knowledge and mindset to maintain a culture of security in an organization that utilizes cloud environments. You will learn to distinguish between on-premise security systems and those used in cloud-based services, and you will build the knowledge to identify appropriate on-premise security controls that should be present in cloud environments as well as security controls that can be applied in cloud environments. Using real-world examples, you will practice applying these controls effectively.
