Key milestone in my Multi-Cloud Security expertise development

I’m very glad of what have been accomplished so far in the development of my Multi-Cloud Security expertise.

I started this journey after having completed 3 vendor neutral security certifications (CISSP & CCSK in 2014 and CCSP in 2016).

Then, I decided to focus on the leading cloud IaaS platform (AWS) with the completion of its Solutions Architect and Security Specialty certifications in 2019.

The journey continues with the successful completion of Azure Security, Google Cloud Security and Google Cloud Architect certifications in April, May and November 2021 respectively.

I want to thank Nokia for providing a working environment which makes possible such Multi-Cloud Security expertise development.

Special thank to learning platforms such as Udemy, Pluralsight, Qwiklabs and Whizlabs which provide useful self-paced contents to prepare for those certifications.


DevSecOps in Azure

Azure is one of the popular cloud platforms used nowadays to support the business transformation of several organizations.

These transformations are implemented in an agile mode and with devops culture.

In order to help Azure customers to integrate security in their devops cycles, Microsoft released the Secure DevOps Kit for Azure (AzSK) framework that was initially developed for its internal staff to secure its infrastructure.

This AzSK framework helps Azure customers to integrate security at all stages of the devops lifecycle.

The following posts I released on Peerlyst (InfoSec community) can help you to get started with this framework:

Introduction to Microsoft Azure Security

According to several studies including the RightScale 2018 State of the Cloud Report, although Amazon Web Services (AWS) remains the leading platform in the public IaaS/PaaS worldwide cloud market, the adoption of Microsoft Azure is growing faster than for AWS.

Thanks to the significant Microsoft footprint (e.g. Windows OS, Office tools, Active Directory, etc.) within most of organizations, Microsoft Azure is being selected as strategic platform for implementing the public and/or hybrid cloud solutions.

If this is the case for your organization and/or you want to understand the Microsoft Azure security capabilities, the series of posts I released on Peerlyst (web comunity of security professionals) might interest you.
