Information Security Controls for Cloud Services (ISO/IEC 27017:2015)

As technology advances and organizations increase their use of cloud services, the requirement to have more specific cloud security controls in place is critical.

While using a cloud service can often increase information security risks, many of the ISO/IEC 27001 controls highlight responsibilities for either a cloud service customer or the cloud service provider. ISO/IEC 27017 is a code of practice, which provides guidance on these controls and helps you focus on the more specific risks associated with cloud services as a customer or provider.

Alongside an ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS), ISO/IEC 27017 helps you manage the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your business information or information entrusted to you by others. This course helps you clearly identify who is responsible to manage the different security risks and ensure the appropriate cloud security controls are in place so you can maintain a resilient ISMS.
