Continuing Professional Education for Audit, Assurance, & Info Security

Course Description

Cloud-native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic cloud environments – internal and external. They are intended to meet the deliver the application management objectives of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) – which by its nature involves rapid development can result in expediency at the potential expense of reduced security and quality. In this information-packed workshop, we will cover key building blocks and significant risks, and systematically sort through the available CyberSecurity control points, safeguards and audit procedures for today’s cloud-native applications.
