What is the CCSK Course?
The CCSK is a web-based examination of someone’s competency in key cloud security issues. Launched in 2010, the CCSK is a widely recognized standard of expertise and is the industry’s primary benchmark for measuring cloud security skillsets.
This is a three day class that begins with the CCSK Basic training for two days. Followed by a third day, CCSK plus, of additional content and hands-on activities.
Module 1. Cloud Architecture
The fundamentals of cloud computing, including definitions, architectures, and the role of virtualization. Key topics include cloud computing service models, delivery models, and fundamental characteristics. It also introduces the Shared Responsibilities Model and a framework for approaching cloud security.
Module 2. Infrastructure Security for Cloud
Delves into the details of securing the core infrastructure for cloud computing- including cloud components, networks, management interfaces, and administrator credentials. It delves into virtual networking and workload security, including the basics of containers and server less.
Module 3. Managing Cloud Security and Risk
Covers important considerations for managing security for cloud computing. It begins with risk assessment and governance, then covers legal and compliance issues, such as discovery requirements in the cloud. It also covers important CSA risk tools including the CAIQ, CCM, and STAR registry.
Module 4. Data Security for Cloud Computing
Covers information lifecycle management for the cloud and how to apply security controls, with an emphasis on public cloud. Topics include the Data Security Lifecycle, cloud storage models, data security issues with different delivery models, and managing encryption in and for the cloud, including customer
Module 5. Application Security and Identity Management for Cloud Computing
Covers identity management and application security for cloud deployments. Topics include federated identity and different IAM applications, secure development, and managing application security in and for the cloud.

Key considerations when evaluating, selecting, and managing cloud computing providers. We also discuss the role of Security as a Service providers and the impact of cloud on Incident Response.
The CCSK Plus builds on the foundation class with expanded material and offers extensive hands-on activities that reinforce classroom instruction. Students engage in a scenario of bringing a fictional organization securely into the cloud, which gives them the opportunity to apply their knowledge by performing a series of activities that would be required in a real-world environment. Below is an outline of the lab material covered in the CCSK Plus class.
Core Account Security
Students learn what to configure in the first 5 minutes of opening a new cloud account and enable security controls such as MFA, basic monitoring, and IAM.
IAM and Monitoring In-Depth
Attendees expand their work on the first lab and implement more-complex identity management and monitoring. This includes expanding IAM with Attribute Based Access Controls, implementing security alerting, and understanding how to structure enterprise-scale IAM and monitoring.
Network and Instance Security
Students create a virtual network (VPC) and implement a baseline security configuration. They also learn how to securely select and launch a virtual machine (instance), run a vulnerability assessment in the cloud, and connect to the instance.
Encryption and Storage Security
Students expand their deployment by adding a storage volume encrypted with a customer managed key. They also learn how to secure snapshots and other data.
Application Security and Federation
Students finish the technical labs by completely building out a 2-tier application and implementing federated identity using OpenID.
Risk and Provider Assessment
Students use the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix and STAR registry to evaluate risk and select a cloud provider.
