If you are using Cloud-based services, you should understand the risks, says expert


Ely, England, 15 October 2012 IT Governance Ltd, the leading expert in information security training, consultancy, books and tools, has reported that the Cloud Computing Foundation training course in November is available at a special discounted price of £450 + VAT. This exceptional offer of the EXIN-accredited course will help cost-effectively train your whole IT team in the basics of Cloud Computing. Places can be immediately booked online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3719.

Cloud Computing presents every organisation with the opportunity to increase the effectiveness of its information technology, while potentially significantly reducing cost.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “Understanding the additional risks and supplier relationship issues associated with Cloud-based services are essential for all IT professionals.”

“If your organisation is using Cloud, you should train the whole IT team so that they are aware of the complexity and potential issues with system integration and security. This is the only way to deliver the benefits of the Cloud to your organisation.” concludes Calder.

Cloud computing is the term given to the availability of IT resources usually supplied by an external third party service provider and accessed using the Internet. The ‘Cloud’ itself is a virtualisation of resources – networks, servers, applications, data storage and services – to which the end user has constant on-demand access. These resources can be provided with minimal user management or service provider interaction.

The Cloud Computing Foundation training course provides an overview of the fundamental concepts of cloud computing and an understanding of the deployment, architecture and design of a cloud computing platform. Delivered in London, this two-day session has been specifically designed to meet the needs of IT professionals who will have a role or interest in the use of internet based IT services. This includes staff from internal and external service providers, their customers, and their managers.

This course also prepares delegates for the EXIN Cloud Computing Foundation examination which is taken at the end of the second day. Successful candidates are awarded the EXIN Cloud Computing Foundation Certificate.

IT Managers can get an additional understanding of the benefits and risks with Cloud Computing, by reading the books Above The Clouds: Managing Risk in the World of Cloud Computing and Cloud Computing: Assessing the Risks.

Course places can also be booked directly with the friendly, helpful IT Governance service centre team on telephone number +44 (0)845 070 1750.
