CCSK

Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge - Foundation

The Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) Foundation class provides students a comprehensive one day review of cloud security fundamentals and prepares them to take the Cloud Security Alliance CCSK certificate exam. Starting with a detailed description of cloud computing, the course covers all major domains in the Guidance document from the Cloud Security Alliance, the Cloud Control Matrix (CCM) 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). View the class schedule page.

CCSK Self-Paced Training

Enroll in CSA’s new online self-paced training. Led by Rich Mogull, this self-paced version of the CCSK Foundation course takes you through all 6 modules with in-depth explanations and visual aids to help you learn difficult concepts. Each module ends with a short quiz to identify which material you need to review before progressing to the next unit. At the end of the course you will take a practice test to assess your overall comprehension and help prepare you to pass the CCSK exam.

Take CCSK Self-Paced Training if You...

  • Have a complicated schedule and can't fit in a regular class.
  • Are paying for your training out-of-pocket.
  • Want to invest in multiple complementary certificates.
  • Need a course that can be completed at home, at work or on-the-go.
  • Want a learning experience customized to you.
  • Are looking to earn an online certificate that's based on research from subject matter experts out in the field.

  • Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge - Plus

    The CCSK Plus class builds upon the CCSK Foundation class with expanded material and extensive hands-on activities with a second day of training. Students will learn to apply their knowledge as they perform a series of exercises as they complete a scenario bringing a fictional organization securely into the cloud.

    This second day of training includes additional lecture, although student’s will spend most of their time assessing, building, and securing a cloud infrastructure during the exercises. View the class schedule page.

    CSA CCSK Training


    Q. Does CSA provide training programs for CCSK test preparation?

    A. Yes. CSA has developed a training program that provides hands-on experience in securing a cloud environment and that assists students in achieving CCSK certification:

    • CCSK Foundation - This course provides a solid foundation in cloud security fundamentals and covers all the material needed to pass the CCSK exam. The course is designed to appeal to a wide range of knowledge levels, but we highly recommend a solid security foundation. This training is a lecture-only, one-day course.

    • CCSK Plus - This course provides a solid foundation in cloud security and includes a full day of hands-on labs to apply the principles in practice. It incorporates new, expanded material for advanced students. The course covers all the material needed to pass the CCSK v4 exam while adding a pragmatic approach to immediately kickstart your cloud security projects. (**Note: All labs use Amazon Web Services, and students will need to have an AWS account and a laptop, instructions are sent before class). We do include demonstrations of some other major cloud platforms, such as Microsoft Azure, but all exercises are restricted to AWS.**

      The course is designed to appeal to a wide range of skill levels, but we highly recommend a solid security foundation and, for the labs, experience making SSH connections. While most of the labs occur in a web browser, you will need to connect to Linux cloud servers and copy and paste a handful of command lines. This training mixes lecture and lab modules across two days.


    Q. Are live, instructor-led trainings available, and if so, what is the cost?

    A. Yes, CSA works with several training partners to provide live, instructor-led training, both in the classroom and remotely. These trainings happen in a variety of settings (i.e. standalone, at conferences, dedicated in-company training sessions, etc.).

    For a more detailed overview of training dates and cost, please check here.


    Q. Is there an option for an on-site training?

    A. Yes, CSA organizes on-site training sessions in collaboration with our training partners.
