SEC524: Cloud Security Fundamentals
Great outline for cloud security checks & risk assesment.
Cornel Ruston, Cr Associates, LLC
I believe this is the best cloud security out there that is extremey well balanced with relevant labs and provides a solid understanding of cloud security risks as more organizations are moving towards cloud.

This SANS training course, Cloud Security Fundamentals (SEC524), starts out with a detailed introduction to the various delivery models of cloud computing, ranging from Software as a Service (SaaS) to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and everything in between. Each of these delivery models represent an entirely separate set of security conditions to consider, especially when coupled with various cloud types, including public, private and hybrid. An overview of security issues within each of these models will be covered with an in-depth discussion of the risks involved. This cloud security training course will go in-depth on architecture and infrastructure fundamentals for private, public and hybrid clouds, including a wide range of topics such as patch and configuration management, virtualization security, application security and change management. Policy, risk assessment and governance within cloud environments will also be covered, with recommendations for both internal policies and contract provisions. This path leads to a discussion of compliance and legal concerns. The first day will wrap up with disaster recovery and business continuity planning using cloud models and architecture
Day 2 of this cloud security training course will start with the challenges of identity and access management in cloud environments. Next, more businesses are utilizing the cloud to store critical data and we will cover how to protect your critical data in the cloud. New approaches for data encryption, network encryption, key management and data lifecycle concerns will be covered in detail, followed by a deep dive into risk assessments and risk management. Intrusion detection and incident response in cloud environments will also be covered, along with how best to manage these critical security processes and the technologies that support them given that most controls are managed by the CSP.
You Will Learn:
- Foundations of cloud policy and contracts
- Cloud risks, including threats and vulnerabilities
- The 14 domains of the Cloud Security Alliance's cloud security research
- Best practices for securing multiple layers of the cloud stack
- How to adapt security architecture, tools, and processes for use in cloud environments
- Everything you need to know to pass the CSA Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) exam!
