There has been a lot of cloud computing training for IT professionals lately, and many are starting to realize what works in a cloud solution and what does not. The recent nCircle 2012 Cloud Security Trend Study surveyed professionals in an IT career and found that, for the third year in a row, the cloud is a top security concern.With security in mind, 80 percent of respondents said they are more likely to use clouds which are compliant with FISMA, SOX or PCI compliance rules. Only 7 percent have outsourced 30 or more of their organization's infrastructure to the cloud, which shows that some industry professionals still don't fully trust the cloud."Although cloud adoption is growing, it continues to be a minor part of most organizations' infrastructure," said David Meltzer, vice president of engineering for nCircle. "Cloud adoption blurs the boundaries of sensitive data storage, making it far more difficult to control and protect. It's also extremely easy for anyone to provision cloud resources without involving security or IT. It can be difficult to discover all the cloud infrastructure being used on enterprise networks because many traditional IT security tools don't adapt easily to cloud environments."Allan Hackney, senior vice president and CIO of John Hancock Financial Services, told Computerworld that, with IT training for the cloud, people can show themselves as a cloud expert at a company, which could mean some big moves for that person's career.
