- [Instructor] The only thing you need to know to get an appreciation for this course is how to log onto Facebook, Twitter, or some other social media site, or know how to access your network remotely, or access your online bank account. Because when you update your Facebook status, you're using cloud computing, or checking your bank balance on your phone, you are relying on cloud to solve many of the challenges of your company or organization. Whether you are firing off emails on the move, or using a bunch of apps to help you manage your workload.
When you are playing Game of Thrones with someone in another country or continent, you are in the cloud. When you are texting your friends at all hours of the day, you are in the cloud. What I hope to introduce to you during this course is what is going on under the hood so that you will have a better understanding of cloud computing, the security concerns, and how to reduce those threats so that you are operating at an acceptable level of risk. There are a lot of misconceptions out there, and the more you know, the safer you will be.
When we make one user more secure, we eventually become more secure as individuals, then as an enterprise, and eventually as a nation, one step at a time. Now let's look at what is a cloud.
