Training the next generation of cybersecurity professionals in the Philippines

Manila, May 28, 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 Phoenix One Knowledge Solutions, Inc. (Phoenix One), a quality-focused training and consulting company committed to keeping organizations and individuals abreast of today’s dynamic, fast-changing global environment, has become an authorized Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) Training Partner.

CCSK is the standard of expertise for cloud security and provides an individual with the foundation they need to secure data in the cloud. CCSK has helped thousands of IT and security professionals upgrade their skill sets and enhance their careers by obtaining the certification. It was no surprise when the Certification Magazine listed CCSK at #1 on the Average Salary Survey 2016.

“Today’s IT professional needs to be the cloud thought-leader of tomorrow. The CCSK sets the bar for security professionals who are seeking to deepen their knowledge in securing their cloud adoption,” said Dr. Hing-Yan Lee, Executive Vice President, CSA APAC. “We look forward to seeing greater awareness and understanding of cloud security in the Philippines thanks in part to the high-caliber training programs offered by Phoenix One.”

“We are excited to partner with CSA to deliver CCSK training and taking another step forward in our mission to deliver the best practices for security assurance within cloud computing,” said Jay Silayan, Founder and President, Phoenix One.

Since it was launched in 2010, thousands of IT and security professionals have upgraded their skillsets and enhanced their careers by obtaining the CCSK. The CCSK exam body of knowledge is the CSA Security Guidance v4, the CSA Cloud Control Matrix and the ENISA Cloud Computing Risk Assessment report. Among the benefits of earning the CCSK are:

  • Proven competency in key cloud security issues through an organization that specializes in cloud research;
  • Increased employment opportunities by filling the skills-gap for cloud-certified professionals;
  • Demonstrated technical knowledge, skills, and abilities to effectively use controls tailored to the cloud;
  • Ability to establish a baseline of security best practices when dealing with a broad array of responsibilities, from cloud governance to configuring technical security controls; and
  • Serves as a complement to other credentials.
