Securing a private data center has its challenges but it is made easier by the fact that single data centers are centralized. Cloud systems, on the other hand, expose a much larger risk surface, and this surface is only larger and more complex for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments. Today's cloud engineers and operators require more advanced knowledge of risk factors that are specific to various cloud configurations. In this course, you'll learn about cloud security challenges, vulnerabilities inherent in moving your organization to the cloud, and how to tailor operations in the cloud for resiliency. You will learn to create a virtual network in the Azure environment. You will also discover some of the repercussions of security failures in the cloud. Finally, you will learn about cloud backup and disaster recovery.
