Cloud computing is the new style of organizing IT. It has excellent benefits but shows new security and governance risks. The Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) addresses these risks and allows you to spot and prevent them.
The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) has developed a vastly adopted catalog of security best practices, the Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing, V4.0.
In addition, the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) created a whitepaper called Cloud Computing: Benefits, Risks, and Suggestions for Information Security. This was also an essential contribution to the cloud security body of knowledge.
