Elevate your expertise with the Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) and be at the forefront of cloud security. The CCSK certificate is widely recognised as the standard of expertise for cloud security and gives you a cohesive and vendor-neutral understanding of how to secure data in the cloud. The CCSK credential is the foundation that prepares you to earn additional cloud credentials, that is specific to certain vendors or job functions.

Attaining the CCSK certification will provide you with the knowledge to effectively develop a holistic cloud security programme relative to globally accepted standards. It covers key areas, including best practices for IAM, cloud incident response, application security, data encryption, SecaaS, securing emerging technologies, and more.

This programme gives you a broad overview of cloud security and allows you to gain critical insights into issues such as data security, key management as well as identity, and access management.

Key Takeaways

At the end of this programme, you will be able to:
  • Demonstrate your technical knowledge, skills, and abilities to effectively use controls tailored to the cloud
  • Learn to establish a baseline of security best practices when dealing with a broad array of responsibilities, from cloud governance to configuring technical security controls
  • Get hands-on experience securing an organisation in the cloud
  • Have a broad overview of cloud security with hooks to dig in deeper to a specific coverage area.
