Course Description

This course explores basic concepts of the cloud and IoT (Internet of things), and examines common security threats, a somewhat new and neglected area of cybersecurity. In this 8 video course, you will examine the cloud concept of distributed storage, and how IoT uses the cloud. First, examine the basics of cloud architecture, and some of the variations. You will learn that a private cloud is an expensive solution, and examine the security advantages of using a private cloud, in which one organization has full control over cloud security, and does not share the cloud with data from other organizations. You will learn about the available public cloud services, including Amazon, Microsoft Azure, and the iCloud for Apple devices. There are two basic advantages to using a public cloud: the cost, and cloud vendors specialize in cloud administration and security. You will also examine concepts and practices for cloud security, for both the cloud and IoT, including least privileges, and the CIA triangle.
