Attendees are recommended to bring a smartphone or tablet upon which they can install apps: several labs use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) technologies and benefit from an app such as Google or Microsoft's 'Authenticator' app.
This course is not suited for customer sites where the use of portable electronic devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets) are restricted, as the trainer will require these to manage the cloud environment.
This five day Certified Cloud Security Practitioner course is focused on Cloud Security, encompassing Cloud Security Architecture, DevSecOps, Data and Assurance aspects, Governance, Cloud Security Operations and Web Application Security.
The course spans cloud security principles, patterns and architectural frameworks, data protection and compliance for cloud based applications, data and infrastructure, and the design, development and implementation of cloud security architectures.
We will review the wide range of technical security controls available using Cloud Service Provider and partner technologies, automation and DevSecOps, assurance, audit and security testing of cloud based services. Containers and serverless architectures will be introduced and their security implications reviewed. Agile DevOps methodologies will be covered and the use of a Continuous Integration Pipeline for security improvements, validation and testing.
The course is delivered through presentations, discussions, practical demonstrations and 'hands-on' labs. You will gain practical hands-on experience of implementing and using cloud technologies and technical security controls in labs based on services from leading cloud service providers AWS and Microsoft, and consolidate learning in group workshops to develop cloud security architectures, based on realistic scenarios.
The APMG Practitioner Certificate in Cloud Security exam will be taken on the final day of the course.
This course is aimed at technical and security specialists looking to develop and operate secure applications and systems using an agile DevOps methodology with fully automated deployments to cloud environments.
