A Manager's Guide to Cloud Computing and Cybersecurity  

 Course Description

This course provides an overview of cloud computing and the business and security considerations of transitioning to a cloud environment or from one cloud service provider to another. The course is presented in two modules. In addition to providing information that aligns with industry standard content from the Cloud Security Alliance, this course also includes a module that presents different real-world scenarios to learners, asking them to apply what they have learned to situations they might encounter in the workplace.

This course follows the structure of the (ISC)2 Certified Cloud Computing Professional certification. While it is intended as the first of a five-course suite, it can be taken as a stand-alone course.
