Cloud Computing Security Knowledge - Foundation
The CCSK - Foundation course is based on V3.0 of the CCSK exam and the CSA Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Cloud Computing V3.0.

The Cloud Computing Security Knowledge- Foundation class provides students a comprehensive one day review of cloud security fundamentals and prepares them 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).

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.

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.
