Course Description:

Organizations have been moving to the cloud because it brings value. While it brings value, it also creates information risks such as security risk, regulatory compliance risk, discovery risk, BC risk, data loss, end of life data purge, chain of custody of evidence, key management, data loss, interoperability, portability, and many more. These risks must be identified, assessed, mitigated, and monitored. Three cloud architectures – IaaS, PaaS, SaaS come with different capabilities, and different risk management plans. Some of these risks are the responsibility of cloud service provider (CSP), and in other cases it is the customer who is responsible. But in either case, customer is the one who is accountable in all these cases. This one-day seminar will discuss different cloud models, their capabilities, and their risk mitigation plans.
