Certified Cloud Security Professional


As more organisations adopt cloud-based systems, new complexities and challenges surface and the risks increase. Organisations need cloud security professionals with the requisite knowledge, skills and abilities to be able to audit, assess and secure cloud infrastructures.
In response to this, (ISC) and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) have developed the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) certification. This credential reflects in-depth knowledge derived from hands-on information security and cloud computing experience. It validates practical know-how for professionals whose responsibilities involve cloud security architecture, design, operations and service orchestration.
In this five-day course you will gain a thorough understanding of the information security risks and mitigation strategies critical to data security in the cloud. The course covers the six domains of the Official (ISC) CCSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK®) and prepares you to take the CCSP exam to become a Certified Cloud Security Professional.
