In the CompTIA Cloud+ Advanced training course, participants will learn about testing, tools, security, controls, recovery, and availability.
This course will start with troubleshooting in the cloud including techniques for testing and tools you can use for troubleshooting including ping, traceroute, NSlookup and more. We will go through each of these TCP/IP utilities to show the functionality that they provide, since this is imperative for you to understand them in order to be able to diagnose and solve cloud related problems. We’ll move into some additional troubleshooting tools including address resolution protocol (ARP), telnet, SSH, Windows Powershell, and the importance of documentation for being able to troubleshoot.
We’ll move into security and controls starting with best practices for network security including auditing, using layered security approach, importance of hardening both guest virtual machines as well as host hypervisors, and doing testing such as penetration testing.
Then, we’ll discuss data security starting with basic concepts like authentication and authorization into additional security mechanism like implementing confidentially through encryption or verifying data integrity using digital signatures.
Next, you’ll learn about access controls and the various methods used like role based access control (RBAC), discretionary access control (DAC), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and single sign-on (SSO).
Lastly, we’ll move into recovery and availability starting with how to develop a disaster recovery plan. We’ll end with how to configure high availability.
If you have not done so, it is recommended you take: CompTIA Cloud+ - Part 1 Basic
and CompTIA Cloud+ - Part 2 Intermediate
prior to taking this course.
