About this Course
Created by ISC2 and the Cloud Security Alliance, Brought Together for You by Intrinsec.
The CCSK (Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge ) gives a broad overview of cloud security and allows learners to gain critical insights into issues such as data security, key management, and identity and access management.
The CCSP (Certified Cloud Security Professional) complements and builds upon CSA’s CCSK by providing an in-depth review of the knowledge required for understanding cloud computing and its information security risks and mitigation strategies.
A CCSP applies information security expertise to a cloud computing environment and demonstrates competence in cloud security architecture, design, operations, and service orchestration. This professional competence is measured against a globally recognized body of knowledge.
The CCSP complements and builds upon CSA’s CCSK certification, ultimately representing the highest standard for cloud security certification.
This class is instructor-led with the addition of self-study resources providing every possible resource to confidently prepare for both certifications.Register now
