We proudly present a 1 day workshop for the industry’s first individual certification of cloud security competence!

The Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) demonstrates that you have the skills and knowledge to ensure that cloud services are implemented and utilised within your organisation with the appropriate security controls in place. This includes technical as well as management and governance domains.

The body of knowledge and the CCSK are now at version 4, and include the latest relevant topics including DevOps, big data and IOT.

Cloud security is a valued but underestimated skill, and the CCSK exam is not an easy one. However, with proper guidance and our unique blended program you are practically guaranteed to pass. The program includes the official CSA CCSK Foundation courseware, but extends it with additional material.

The program focuses around a one-day workshop. Before that workshop you can and should already get started on the e-learning as well as the live online interactive training sessions. You will also get 6 months access to the support group for additional study to pass the exam and apply the knowledge in your work.

The exam is online at the student’s convenience after the course (token included in course fee).

Get certified by the leading industry coalition.

IT architect, London City, Canary Wharf: “Peter clearly has a great deal of specific industry experience and draws on this to provide real-world examples. Always happy to divert the conversation out of the course where relevant and interesting within the cloud computing context. I think this was particularly useful and observed this providing value to the entire group.”

Security operations manager: “The course provides a fantastic overview of Cloud and was an eye opener to me. The benefits of cloud were made clear, but so too were the limitations and considerations of the service. I would recommend this course to everyone involved in Cloud from hands on IT to Executive.
