As companies move more and more of their infrastructure to the cloud, they're forced to shift their approach to security. The security controls you need to put in place for a cloud-based infrastructure are different from those for a traditional datacenter. There are also threats specific to a cloud environment. A mistake could put your data at risk.
It's no surprise that hiring managers are looking for candidates who can demonstrate their cloud security know-how—and a number of companies and organizations have come up with certifications to help candidates set themselves apart. As in many other areas of IT, these certs can help give your career a boost. "Cloud security certifications can set professionals up for long-term career success in designing, operating, and maintaining secure cloud environments for today’s enterprises," says Joe Vadakkan, senior director of services alliances at Optiv. "In addition to the process being a fun learning experience, each certification offers a unique benefit to understanding the security controls, associated risks, and dynamic needs of cloud operating models."
