Course Description

The aim of the course is to prepare participants to CCSK certification, as well as help them to gain insight about Cloud Security World.

The CCSK - Foundation course is based on V3.0 of the CCSK exam and the CSA Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Cloud Computing V3.0.

The Cloud Computing Security Knowledge- Foundation class provides students a comprehensive review of cloud security fundamentals and prepares them to take the Cloud Security Alliance CCSK v3.0 certificate exam. Starting with a detailed description of cloud computing, the course covers all major domains in the Guidance v3.0 document from the Cloud Security Alliance, and the recommendations from the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA).

This class is geared towards security professionals, but is also useful for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of cloud security. (We recommend attendees have at least a basic understanding of security fundamentals, such as firewalls, secure development, encryption, and identity management). 

This is a course preparation for certification exam/procedure. The fee doesn't include exam fee. The exam date and application should be done by participant(s) themselves. Please contact us for details and further clarification
