About this Course

The Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) is widely recognized as the standard of expertise for cloud security and provides a cohesive and vendor-neutral understanding of how to secure data in the cloud.


The class starts off with a detailed description of cloud computing and business requirements (governance, risk management, compliance, and legal) based on standards such as NIST and ISO/IEC. The session then moves into more technical security issues such as encryption, Identity Management, assessment of Public and Private Clouds, securing corporate data in the public cloud, and securing private clouds.


The CCSK Plus builds on the Foundation lectures, (days 1-2 outlined above) with a third day of training including expanded material and extensive hands-on labs.  Learners will be able to apply their knowledge from the lectures by performing a series of exercises to bring a fictional organization securely into the cloud.
