Plan of Studies

This workshop is divided into 2 days: the first day will present the basics of architecture and infrastructure, as well as a wide range of topics, such as the administration of patches and configurations, virtualization security, the security of applications and the management of changes. As we deep into these fundamental cloud standards, you will learn how to immediately improve the ways in which your own team is deploying assets in the cloud.

The second day begins with disaster recovery and business continuity planning, using models and architecture in the cloud. The storage of data in the cloud has become common, so we will discuss how to protect that data, using many tactics, including identity and access management protocols. New approaches to data and network encryption, key management and data lifecycle issues will be covered in detail. This will be followed by a discussion about intrusion detection and response to incidents in cloud environments, along with how to better manage these critical security processes and the technologies that support them. We will finish with a final risk assessment for your own projects that will potentially move to the cloud.
