In the ever-changing world of the cloud, you face unique security challenges every day — from new threats to sensitive data, to uneducated internal teams. Take command with the CCSP: the premier cloud security certification. The CCSP is a global credential that represents the highest standard for cloud security expertise. It was co-created by (ISC)² and Cloud Security Alliance — leading stewards for information security and cloud computing security. (ISC)² and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) developed the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) credential to ensure that cloud security professionals have the required knowledge, skills, and abilities in cloud security design, implementation, architecture, operations, controls, and compliance with regulatory frameworks. 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 is a stand-alone credential that complements and builds upon existing credentials and educational programs, including (ISC)²’s Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and CSA’s Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK).
The CCSP is one of the hottest certifications on the market today. But is this cloud security certification right for you? The answer is yes if you:
Are an experienced IT professional who’s involved with IT architecture, web and cloud security engineering, information security, governance, risk and compliance or IT auditing.
Are heavily involved with the cloud (or you’d like to be) in a global environment. You’re responsible for migrating to, managing or advising on the integrity of cloud-based software, such as SalesForce, Office 365, Optum, Impact Cloud, JIRA Software, SharePoint or CTERA.
Are an early adopter who loves being on the leading edge of technology.
Are passionate about security.
Want to differentiate yourself (or your business).
Want to stay up-to-speed on rapidly evolving cloud technologies, threats and mitigation strategies.
In addition, many who pursue the CCSP find it useful for working with organizations committed to DevSecOps, Agile or Bimodal IT practices. The CCSP is ideal for those working in roles such as:
The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course is as follows:
A minimum of five years cumulative, paid, full-time work experience in information technology of which three years must be in information security and one year in one or more of the six domains of the CCSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK).
Earning CSA’s CCSK certificate can be substituted for one year of experience in one or more of the six domains of the CCSP CBK.
Earning (ISC)²’s CISSP credential can be substituted for the entire CCSP experience requirement.
How will this Course help You
On completion of this program, the participants will gain the following:
Instant credibility and differentiation. The CCSP positions you as an authority figure on cloud security. It’s a quick way to communicate your knowledge and earn trust from your clients or senior leadership.
Unique recognition. When you earn the CCSP, you achieve the highest standard for cloud security expertise. This certification is powered by the two leading non-profits focused on cloud and information security: CSA and (ISC)². It’s vendor-neutral, and you need practical knowledge and experience to earn it. Quite simply, there is no other cloud security certification like it.
Staying ahead. The CCSP can enhance your working knowledge of cloud security principles and practices. It can keep you current on evolving technologies, new threats and new mitigation strategies. And it can fill in unknown gaps in your knowledge. You’ll stay ahead.
Versatility. Because the CCSP is vendor-neutral, you can use your knowledge across a variety of different cloud platforms. This not only makes you more marketable, it ensures you’re better equipped to protect sensitive data in a global environment.
Career advancement. The CCSP creates opportunities. For example, as a consultant, it can help you expand into cloud services and win new business. If you’re an internal subject matter expert, it can help you move into more strategic roles.
