Securing Applications on the Cloud [Video]

More Information
  • Tackle security challenges related to cloud applications.
  • Manage various cloud delivery and deployment models. 
  • Secure data on the cloud by mastering business continuity and disaster recovery planning. 
  • Eliminate the risks associated with cloud infrastructure by performing VAPT.
  • Integrate security in software development life cycles.
  • Perform security testing of cloud applications using SAST/DAST tools and manual penetration testing.

When organizations move applications to the cloud they increase their security risks. As a cloud security professional, you have to implement more security controls over how data and applications are protected on the cloud. The cloud is a major technology shift and hence there is an inevitable need to provide it with a strong authentication framework.

This course will show you how to protect your cloud applications from costly security breaches. You will learn to overcome cloud infrastructure security challenges, implement business continuity and disaster recovery planning, and apply a variety of approaches to encrypting your data. You will also learn to perform security testing of the applications hosted on cloud services, and various security solutions to secure your application data on the cloud.

By the end of this video course, take your knowledge to the next level by learning to protect your business-critical applications from external and internal threats throughout their entire life cycle, from design to implementation to production.
