Cloud Security Alliance Announces ACinfotec as Authorized CCSK Training Partner in Thailand
Partnership provides Thailand’s next generation of cybersecurity professionals with strong foundation in cloud security best practices
Bangkok, May 20, 2020 – The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining standards, certifications and best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment, today announced that ACinfotec, Thailand's leading expert provider of services, solutions, and consultation for IT governance, risk, and compliance management, has become an authorized Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) Training Partner.
The vendor-neutral CCSK, which was described by CIO.com as the "mother of all cloud computing certifications," tests for a broad foundation of cloud security knowledge, covering such topics as architecture, governance, compliance, operations, encryption, and virtualization and serves as the foundation for those seeking to demonstrate a deep-seated knowledge and competency with cyber, information, software and cloud computing infrastructure security.
“We encourage organizations looking to enhance their security capabilities to take advantage of the CCSK training delivered by ACinfotec in Thailand," said Dr. Hing-Yan Lee, Executive Vice President, CSA APAC. "Today's security professional must be armed with broad security capabilities — including skill sets related to cloud computing — as they work to adopt security best practices for their businesses. CCSK training, such as that provided by ACinfotec, gives professionals a strong foundation on which to build an even stronger cloud computing infrastructure.”
“Cloud security is a fast-growing area of our services. Partnering with CSA will help us bring world-class knowledge to cloud service providers and cloud customers in Thailand,” said Sasawat Malaivongs, Business Director, ACinfotec.
The CCSK certificate is widely recognized as the standard of expertise for cloud security and provides them with the foundations they need to secure data in the cloud. Those who earn their CCSK are able to establish their competency in key cloud security issues through an organization that specializes in cloud research, as well as demonstrate their technical knowledge, skills, and ability to effectively use controls tailored to the cloud. The CCSK serves as a complement to other credentials and holders are able to establish a baseline of security best practices when dealing with a broad array of responsibilities, from cloud governance to configuring technical security controls. Yet another benefit lies in increased employment opportunities as organizations look to close the skills-gap for cloud-certified professionals.
ACinfotec is Thailand’s leading expert provider of services, solutions and consultation for IT governance, risk and compliance management based on various well-known international standards, best practices and regulations. We create and deliver knowledge to help organizations meet the real-world, evolving business and information technology needs. Our ultimate objective is to provide total solutions, including expert advice, tools, training and assessment, for any IT governance, risk and compliance requirements of organization in any type.
