Cloud Computing Security Knowledge (CCSK) foundation


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).
The Cloud Computing Security Knowledge – Foundation class provides students a comprehensive one day review of cloud security fundamentals. The class aims to educate students regarding the different risks, issues and technologies relevant to cloud computing. During the class we will review the different aspects of cloud computing starting from legal, compliance, and risk management and up to Identity management and technology tools relevant to cloud environments.


The class is designed for organizations who wish to understand the full picture of cloud security before implementing a strategy of cloud computing migration or product development.
We all know that security considerations are major issue when talking about a cloud computing strategy, and the course aims at providing the knowledge required to analyze threats and understand the solutions in the market.

Target Audience
  • Decision makers who want to understand the terms & concepts of cloud computing, risk assessment methodologies and relevant technologies
  • Organizations that make their first steps into the cloud and want to gain knowledge about the security capabilities in this environment
  • CIO and senior management who are interested in expanding knowledge on relevnat information security risks, compliance and legal issues
