Ely, England, 24 January 2012 – IT Governance Ltd, the leading expert in information security training, consultancy, books and tools, has today launched the Cloud Computing Foundation training course. This course is based on the EXIN Cloud Computing Foundation syllabus and prepares delegates for the EXIN Cloud Computing Foundation examination which is taken at the end of the second day. The first sitting will be held on 9-10 May and places can be booked immediately here www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3719.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “We have launched this new course as we recognise that companies are increasingly shifting to the cloud to eliminate maintenance costs. On the other hand, this tendency increases the demand for human resources who can research, plan or support an implementation of Cloud computing. Our new course is particularly suited for IT Managers who are responsible for the delivery of Cloud services and IT Directors who need to understand and evaluate the business case and performance of Cloud resources.”
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.
Calder continues, “Organisations also need to be aware that a major cloud provider is likely to suffer a significant security breach. Organised criminals will increasingly target cloud services. Therefore, it is important that IT managers are familiar with security in the cloud and identity management – a topic covered extensively during our course.”
The Cloud Computing Foundation training course is presented by an experienced trainer in a class-room format and includes relevant workshop exercises and discussion sessions.
IT Managers can get an additional understanding of the benefits and risks with Cloud computing, by reading the book Above The Clouds: Managing Risk in the World of Cloud Computing.
