Cloud computing looks set to become the next big thing, but security concerns mar its adoption as the United States gets ready to pump US$53 billion into fourth-generation networks over the next five years. EC-Council offers cutting-edge solutions such as cryptography courses and cryptanalysis training for individuals with security concerns over emerging key technologies.

Amazon, Microsoft, and Sonyare examples of just some companies that have recently made headlines for all the wrong reasons, having had their cloud computing efforts breached by unethical hackers. EC-Council, an international information security certification body, reports that without proper infrastructure and cryptanalysis training, usage of cloud computing may never be a fully secure platform for individuals or businesses.

Jay Bavisi, the President of EC-Council, says that even though general cloud architecture is relatively secure, it is easy for irreparable damage to be done to online stored data once the first layer of security is breached by an intruder.

Cloud-based services require an operation and management method similar to enterprise systems, demanding well-encrypted data with secure physical locations. With cloud services, every piece of data is stored on a physical hard drive or in solid state memory. This data is thus accessible to anyone with an Internet connection, further highlighting the importance of secure protection. Read more…
