Let’s all float on the clouds .. digitally, of course!!!


If you ask any of the companies where do they store the user’s data, most of the companies answer - It’s all in the cloud. It may be your digital identities or your food eating habits or the grocery items you order, all of them is ( not so safely, I doubt the security too) stored in THE CLOUD.


But what exactly is the cloud that everyone seems to be on the top of these days? In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive. hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet.


If everyone’s data ( even if you did not sign up for it, believe me, your data is surely there) is stored in the cloud, shouldn’t we understand it in detail, especially the security aspect of it? Well, my aim is exactly that - To help you get to the bottom, I mean on the top of it, of this Mr Cloud. 


I will cover all the 14 domains of the CCSK and overlapping domains of the CCSP going forward. This will entail the cloud architecture, basic concepts to the details to the legal issues, from compliance and governance to infrastructure security. We will delve into the virtualization and explore containers all the while learning about application security and encryption in the cloud. 


This journey is not for the faint-hearted, so join in only if you love the roller-coaster ups and downs and mind-boggling concepts.


It’s time to begin CCSP and CCSK preparation guys !!!!
