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.

The Changing Face of Work and Workplace Learning


Cloud computing , while it has been around for a long time, is showing huge impact today. “In July 2010, Rackspace Hosting and NASA jointly launched an open-source cloud-software initiative known as OpenStack. The OpenStack project intended to help organizations offer cloud-computing services running on standard hardware. I am not the kind to crystal gaze. I lay no claim to being able to predict the future.
