Cloud computing is a widely used computing paradigm for on-demand delivery of computing resources as utilities. It offers practically unlimited computing resources to users in a pay-as-you-go model with higher levels of quality of service in a substantially reduced infrastructure cost. In order to understand the impacts of adaptation of cloud-based solutions in businesses from cyber security perspectives, students must understand and learn the fundamentals of security, privacy and trust in cloud systems, and be able to apply them in practice.
Students engage in project-based learning to design and implement security solutions for trustworthy cloud-based applications using existing cloud platforms such as AWS or Azure. By using industry approaches to analysing security risks, together with the project, students learn the practical skills necessary to evaluate and develop secure cloud solutions as well as a fundamental understanding of security, privacy and trust in a cloud system.
