The Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) is designed for any IT professional working in cloud computing and for security professionals with or without cloud background. Many non-security professionals like developers, IT operations, audit/compliance get value out of it. The CCSK certificate is widely recognized as the standard of expertise for cloud security and gives a cohesive and vendor-neutral understanding of how to secure data in the cloud.

This course covers the complete curriculum of CCSK v4 which will provide critical insights into issues such as data security, key management and identity and access management.

The CCSK enables everyone, from information security experts and CEOs to department managers and technical sales teams, the ability to utilize cloud services more securely and speak with confidence about cloud security concerns.
