This five day Certified Cloud Security Practitioner course is focused on Cloud Security, encompassing Cloud Security Architecture, DevSecOps, Data and Assurance aspects, Governance, Cloud Security Operations and Web Application Security.
The course spans cloud security principles, patterns and architectural frameworks, data protection and compliance for cloud based applications, data and infrastructure, and the design, development and implementation of cloud security architectures.
We will review the wide range of technical security controls available using Cloud Service Provider and partner technologies, automation and DevSecOps, assurance, audit and security testing of cloud based services. Containers and serverless architectures will be introduced and their security implications reviewed. Agile DevOps methodologies will be covered and the use of a Continuous Integration Pipeline for security improvements, validation and testing.
The course is delivered through presentations, discussions, practical demonstrations and 'hands-on' labs. You will gain practical hands-on experience of implementing and using cloud technologies and technical security controls in labs based on services from leading cloud service providers AWS and Microsoft, and consolidate learning in group workshops to develop cloud security architectures, based on realistic scenarios.
This course is aimed at technical and security specialists looking to develop and operate secure applications and systems using an agile DevOps methodology with fully automated deployments to cloud environments.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
CPD points can be claimed for GCT accredited courses at the rate of 1 point per hour of training for GCHQ accredited courses (up to a maximum of 15 points).
There are no pre-requisites. However, we recommend that all delegates have an understanding of the general technologies, for example Operating Systems and Networking and Security principles. Experience of using cloud services and security technologies is helpful but not essential.
For those delegates looking for some pre-course general cloud security background, guidance and organisational compliance, the NCSC cloud security collection is probably the single best resource.
Delegates will learn about the following topics:
Cloud Security Frameworks, Principles, Patterns and Certifications
AWS Security Technologies
Microsoft Azure and Office 365
Google Apps for Work
Data Protection and Compliance
Web Application Security
Cloud Identity Services
Cloud Security as a Service
Cloud Security Workshop
Continuous Integration Pipeline
