Attackers never rest, and along with all the traditional threats targeting internal networks and systems, an entirely new variety specifically targeting the cloud has emerged.

As more organizations adopt cloud-based systems, new complexities and challenges surface and the risks increase. Organizations need cloud security professionals with the requisite knowledge, skills and abilities to be able to audit, assess and secure cloud infrastructures.

To address this need, (ISC)² and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) have developed the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) certification. This top cybersecurity credential reflects in-depth knowledge derived from hands-on information security and cloud computing experience. It validates practical know-how for professionals whose responsibilities involve cloud security architecture, design, operations and service orchestration.

In this 5-day course you will gain a thorough understanding of the information security risks and mitigation strategies critical to data security in the cloud in this (ISC)² Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) Exam Preparation course. This course covers the six domains of the Official (ISC)² CCSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK®) and prepares you to take the CCSP exam to become a Certified Cloud Security Professional.
