TrainACE's Certified Cloud Security Engineer (CCSE) training class is designed to teach students the fundamentals of cloud security. This five-day, hands-on, instructor-led class was created in collaboration with cloud security professionals from around the globe. It will help students prepare for the EC-Council CCSE certification exam.
Our CCSE training mixes vendor-neutral and vendor-specific cloud security concepts. Vendor-neutral training teaches students the universal concepts that apply to best practices, technologies, and frameworks in cloud security. While, the vendor-specific training gives students practical knowledge and skills that they will need to work with specific platforms like Amazon Web Servies (AWS), Microsoft's Azure, and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
The CCSE class exemplifies TrainACE's training methodology. Our industry-experienced instructors will give students hands-on instruction, teaching them the practical skills to get the job done and the knowledge required to pass the CCSE exam.

Why Take CCSE Training in Maryland?
With the rapid adoption of cloud technologies in the Washington DC Region, the need for skilled professionals who can secure cloud networks is expanding throughout DC, Maryland, and Virginia. While cloud adoption offers excellent benefits to organizations, it brings with it a complex configuration of security options. Taking CCSE training will arm you with the fundamentals needed to understand cloud security and practical skills using the three biggest cloud platforms.
If you've been working in IT for any time, you'll already be familiar with the existence of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft's Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). All three are well-established and growing cloud platforms, but each uses its own system of permissions and functionality for security.
Given the wide variety of applications being built on any cloud platform, security options' configuration is necessarily all-encompassing and complex. This complexity can lead to vulnerabilities. Indeed, several notable breaches have already occurred due to misconfigured cloud platforms. Our CCSE class will help candidates understand their security options and avoid pitfalls.
With a blend of vendor-neutral knowledge and vendor-specific skills, EC-Councils' CCSE certification makes it unique among professional IT accreditations, giving you an edge when applying for cloud security roles.
