Cloud Computing Security Knowledge (CCSK) Advanced


Security is a major challenge for the adoption of Cloud Computing. IT decision makers must considered the risk factors associated with cloud migration, in both private and public clouds, and adopt proper measures. In order to help organizations manage cloud risks correctly and understand the different security aspects of cloud security – we recommend taking the CCSK training (Cloud Computing Security Knowledge).

Cloud Computing Security Knowledge (CCSK) is the world leading cloud security certification coming from the Cloud Security Alliance. The certification covers all major aspects in cloud security including risk management, provider evaluation, infrastructure and application security, identity management and much more.

“This is the mother of all cloud computing security certifications. The Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge certification is vendor-neutral, and certifies competency in key cloud security areas.”

The CCSK preparation course is made from 2 days: CCSK Foundation (First Day): Frontal teaching of 6 modules that covers all topics relevant to Cloud Computing security. CCSK Advanced (Second Day): The second day of the CCSK is devoted for practicing cloud labs. In the labs students will practice the different security tools available for private and public IaaS
