CCSK Course Overview
Our CCSK training is based on version 4 of the CCSK course and the version 4 exam.
The Cloud Security Alliance’s Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing seeks to establish a stable, secure baseline for cloud operations. It acts as a practical, actionable roadmap to individuals looking to safely and securely adopt the cloud paradigm.
The Cloud Computing Security Knowledge class provides students a comprehensive schedule. Day one and two will offer a review of cloud security fundamentals and day three offers the practical behind the theory, in addition to the valuable knowledge, we will be preparing the student to take the Cloud Security Alliance CCSK certification exam.
Starting with a detailed description of cloud computing, the course covers all major domains in the Guidance version 4 document from the Cloud Security Alliance and the recommendations from the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA).
Our Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge CCSK training programme is geared towards security professionals looking to achieve the CCSK plus certification, also useful for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of cloud security. We recommend attendees have at least a basic understanding of security fundamentals, such as firewalls, secure development, encryption, and identity management.
