This course focuses on security services for Cloud+ and virtual solutions. In this course, Security in the Cloud, you'll learn foundational knowledge about various security tools, services, and technologies of a virtualization/cloud solution deployment. First, you'll learn about security configurations and compliance. Next, you'll explore information about access control. Finally, you'll review the different security automation techniques and tools. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of security technologies needed to understand security for Cloud+.
Course Overview Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Sean Wilkins, and I am a network engineer, author, and technical editor at infoDispersion. I'm excited to welcome you to my course, Security in the Cloud. This course is one of many courses that are being introduced into the Pluralsight library to cover cloud topics. This course specifically focuses on security topics. In investigating cloud security configurations and compliance control, we look a different cloud security configuration topics, including security policy, encryption technologies, key and certificate management, and tunneling protocols. In analyzing cloud security technologies and access control, we look at the different security technologies that are used to secure a cloud solution, including access control models, object authorization, data classification, as well as segmentation and micro‑segmentation. And finally, in reviewing cloud automation techniques, we take a look at the different techniques that can be used to automate the various tasks in the cloud, including associated tolls and services. By the end of this course, you'll have a good base of knowledge to successfully understand the different security concepts and technologies that are commonly seen implemented on cloud and virtualization‑based solutions. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about the cloud with the Security in the Cloud course, at Pluralsight.
