Audit And Security For Cloud-Based Services

In this two-day seminar, attendees will explore the current state of cloud computing and its common architecture, as well as examine the major SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS providers in the market today.

We will cover the security and control deficiencies that exist in cloud-based services and look at Security-as-a-Service as a way to protect against them.

We also will review a risk-based approach to audit and controls for cloud based-services and investigate such areas as cloud-based network models, cloud brokers, and disaster recovery and governance in a cloud-services environment.

Throughout the seminar, class exercises will reinforce what you learn and help you identify the risks, controls, and gaps in cloud services.
