CCSK a solid foundation in Cloud Security issues and best practices

This 3-day training prepares you for the Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) and covers all domain topics outlined by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and the recommendations from the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA). The CCSK credential will provide foundational requirements for any future certifications that focus on specific professions, management or technical skills.


Cloud Security (CCSK) the industry's first Cloud Security certification

The CCSK is strongly supported by a broad coalition of experts and organisations from around the world. The collaboration between CSA and ENISA means that the world's two leading organisations for vendor-neutral Cloud Security research are providing the foundation for the industry's first Cloud Security certification.
