Cloud computing is an emerging technology paradigm that helps organizations deliver IT services faster, with more agility, and with a lower cost of ownership. IT organizations are becoming more cognizant of the associated risks that come with cloud environments. Trusting information assets to the cloud requires a thorough understanding of security and of its associated risks, legal considerations and design of a governance structure.

This course is designed for senior security, audit, and compliance professionals who are architecting policies and strategies to ensure compliance with and secure use of cloud computing. It includes comprehensive reference materials that help to continue the participants' educational experience post the course.

The course prepares you for the Professional Cloud Security Manager certification (PCS) exam provided by the Cloud Credential Council. The PCS is endorsed, recognized and supported by several key technology vendors and standards bodies. The content for this course, as well as the PCS certification is based on and aligned with cloud standards developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
