In my experience, nothing beats a competent team. There is no substitute for knowing and understanding your stuff. Cloud is about outsourcing to external providers, but no external provider will take responsibility for the actions of your company. Your company will have to take that responsibility.

You get qualified by understanding a common body of knowledge such as the Cloud Security Alliance’s CCSK, or (ISC)2 CCSP.
I help you and your team to get qualified. Read below for the options.
CCSK is the mother of all individual cloud security certifications. Get it from the comfort of your home or office. No travel required. Five days of two hours online instructor led. Recordings available, extensive e-learning and chat support. Read more here.
