Cloud Security Training for the Financial Industry

Intrinsec’s cloud security training for the financial industry will develop your IT personnel on cloud security concepts and best practices in a more effective and appropriate manner. How? When presenting the course material we connect key aspects of your training program to the financial industry. We relate the appropriate course information to the same laws, regulations and IT threats your organization faces on a daily basis.

This is accomplished by not only providing an instructor who’s authorized to lead the training program your organization chooses, but one with an extensive background in the financial sector. It’s the first-hand experience in your industry that allows our instructor to add tremendous value to the material presented by adding their own insights and perspectives. The end result is a training experience that truly resonates with the people of your organization.

The benefit to your staff is demonstrating their technical knowledge, skills, and abilities in developing a cloud security program appropriate for the financial sector and relative to globally accepted standards. The benefit to your company is appropriately and responsibly defending itself from the threats related to cloud computing; creating a more effective information security program that mitigates cloud computing risk and supports compliance mandates.
