- [Dan] Cloud computing use has skyrocketed in recent years and for good reason. Accessing IT services over a network where the underlying infrastructure is the responsibility of a cloud provider allows organizations to focus on using technology to solve business problems instead of focusing on the technology itself. However, organizations must take the proper steps to ensure that the use of cloud-based IT services and cloud storage is adequately secured, especially for legal and regulatory compliance. I'm Dan Lachance, and I've been working in IT for over 25 years. Passing the CCSK exam requires knowledge of cloud computing fundamentals. This is the first course in the Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge series and I'm going to explain what the cloud is in preparation for learning how to secure the deployment, management, and use of cloud services. If you're ready to begin learning how to use the cloud securely, join me in my LinkedIn Learning course.
