Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge - Plus Course
The CCSK Plus builds on the foundation class with expanded material and offers extensive hands-on activities that reinforce classroom instruction. Students engage in a scenario of bringing a fictional organization securely into the cloud, which gives them the opportunity to apply their knowledge by performing a series of activities that would be required in a real-world environment. Students will come away ready to earn their Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK).

CCSK Plus Course - Additional Lab Content
Core Account Security
Learn what to configure in the first 5 minutes of opening a new cloud account and enable security controls such as MFA, basic monitoring, and IAM.
IAM and Monitoring In-Depth
Expand on your work in the first lab and implement more-complex identity management and monitoring. This includes expanding IAM with Attribute Based Access Controls, implementing security alerting, and understanding how to structure enterprise-scale IAM and monitoring.
Network and Instance Security
Create a virtual network (VPC) and implement a baseline security configuration. You will also learn how to securely select and launch a virtual machine (instance), run a vulnerability assessment in the cloud, and connect to the instance.
Encryption and Storage Security
Expand your deployment by adding a storage volume encrypted with a customer managed key. You will also learn how to secure snapshots and other data.
Application Security and Federation
Finish the technical labs by completely building out a 2-tier application and implementing federated identity using OpenID.
Risk and Provider Assessment
Practice using the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix and STAR registry to evaluate risk and select a cloud provider.
