Cloud Security Architecture - A practical approach
What you'll learn
- Build cloud security architecture using a practical example
- Apply a methodology based on NIST Cybersecurity Framework
- Comply with regulations like HIPAA and GDPR
- Manage risks like ransomware attacks and misconfigurations and select mitigation measures
- Use a defense in depth strategy to build a resilient architecture
- Create a cloud security strategy
- Create security architecture documentation
- Cloud fundamentals
- Basic IT security
- Understanding of IT architecture
In this course you will learn how to master security architecture for the cloud. You will be using a methodology based on NIST Cybersecurity Framework to take your architecture from business- and regulatory requirements all the way to components and capabilities that can be implemented in the public cloud.
The course will teach you how to map requirements to security measures and perform risk assessments. You will learn to master security strategy for the cloud and build a resilient security posture using a defense in depth strategy. You will also be able to prove compliance to regulations like GDPR and HIPAA using the methodology presented in the course. An important learning objective is also to create structured security architecture documentation.
This course is based on a Health Clinic example and has a hands-on focus for learning. After course completion, you can use all the provided methods and templates from the course in your own work. The resulting components and capabilities can be implemented in any cloud platform, but the course does not cover a cloud platform specific technical implementation of the architecture.

Im Aksel Bruun, a security architect in the Norwegian health sector. In my work, implementing security architecture in the cloud for Norwegian health trusts, i have gained experience in how to create security archcitecture using a holistic approach. As a security architect i have documented, communicated and implemented security archutecture in the cloud. I have also taught my colleagues and business partners about these topics on a national level.
I currently hold the Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) and SABSA Chartered Security Architect – Foundation Certificate (SCF).
