Cloud Computing Goes Mainstream Implications for the IT Security Workforce

Training Industry

As a former CIO, I have implemented and seen the significant benefits of cloud computing, both in the leverage of compute on demand via infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) delivery models, and in the use of software as a service (SaaS) applications. Addressing this IT cloud security challenge is a two-fold challenge. With today’s new computing and service models, the traditional perimeter no longer exists.

More tools offering cloud-based authoring options. 2013 was an exciting year for e-Learning professionals with many discussions around learning paradigms and technologies.

Software as a Service SaaS Implications for the IT Security Workforce

Training Industry

My last blog described the implications of cloud computing going mainstream and its impact on the workforce. In this case, it is likely that sensitive data will be stored and controlled by the SaaS provider and used by an organization’s customers or partners so that the data never comes in contact with the organization’s network, firewalls, or any other security device or process controlled by the organization.
