SAN FRANCISCO (RSA Conference)May 6, 2024 – 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, is pleased to announce that Cyber Defense Magazine has named its Certificate of Competence in Zero Trust (CCZT) as a Global InfoSec Award winner with the title of Cutting-Edge Cybersecurity Training.

Based on the key concepts outlined in CSA's Zero Trust Training (ZTT), the CCZT provides an in-depth understanding of Zero Trust architecture, its components, and its functioning. It includes foundational Zero Trust best practices released by leading authoritative sources such as CISA and NIST, innovative work around the Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) by CSA Research, and guidance from renowned Zero Trust experts such as John Kindervag, founder of the Zero Trust philosophy and one of the world’s foremost cybersecurity experts.

“With Zero Trust established as the future of information security, a Zero Trust-based approach is fast becoming a requirement for organizations and a required skill for a range of security professionals. We are extremely pleased that our Zero Trust training and certification, which leverages best practices from leading industry experts, standards bodies, and government entities, has been recognized as among the very best in its field,” said Jim Reavis, CEO and co-founder, Cloud Security Alliance.

Now in its 12th year, the Cyber Defense Global InfoSec awards honor startups, early stage, later stage, or public companies in the information security space who offer a forward-looking cybersecurity product or service. Judges are CISSP-, FMDHS-, CEH-certified security professionals who vote based on their independent review of the company’s submitted materials.
