CCSK Course overview:

Net Security Training’s CCSK course is based on V3.0 of the CCSK exam and the CSA Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Cloud Computing V3.0 which results with the Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge ( CCSK Certificate ).

The Cloud Computing Security Knowledge class provides students a comprehensive schedule. Day one will offer a review of cloud security fundamentals and day two offers the practical behind the theory, in addition to the valuable knowledge we will be preparing the student 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).

Our CCSK training program is geared towards security professionals looking to achieve the CCSK plus certification, 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.
