Course Description

This course is comprised of two modules. The first provides an introduction to cloud-based services and the accompanying need for cybersecurity. The second module provides a series of real-world scenarios in which the learner must apply several of the concepts covered in the first module. Although this is an introductory course, learners should have some basic understanding of IT concepts. This course follows the structure of the (ISC)2 Certified Cloud Computing Professional certification. While it is intended as the first of a five-course suite, it can be taken as a stand-alone course.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:

  • Describe the differences between cloud-based and traditional computing environments
  • Identify the three major service categories of cloud computing
  • List the different actors of the cloud-computing architecture
  • Understand the need for cybersecurity and its role in cloud computing
  • Apply what you have learned to real-world scenarios involving cybersecurity and cloud computing
