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.
