TrainACE has developed a 5-day training course designed to help IT professionals obtain the CCSP–Certified Cloud Security Professional- credential. The CCSP certification by ISC² is a global credential born from the expertise of the two industry-leading stewards of information systems and cloud computing security, (ISC)² and CSA. The CCSP credential is appropriate and applicable to cloud security in a global environment. This is especially important given the legal, regulatory and compliance concerns that come with multi-jurisdictional housing of personally identifiable information (PII).

Led by an (ISC)² authorized instructor, this training seminar provides a comprehensive review of cloud security concepts and industry best practices, covering the 6 domains of the CCSP CBK

For those who qualify, the CCSP exam will test their competence in the six CCSP domains of the (ISC)² Common Body of Knowledge (CBK), which cover:

  • Architectural Concepts & Design Requirements
  • Cloud Data Security
  • Cloud Platform & Infrastructure Security
  • Cloud Application Security
  • Operations
  • Legal & Compliance

Recommended Training Audience and Prerequisites

The CCSP credential is designed for experienced information security professionals with at least five years of full-time IT experience, including three years of information security and at least one year of cloud security experience. The CCSP credential is suitable for mid-level to advanced professionals involved with IT architecture, web and cloud security engineering, information security, governance, risk and compliance, and even IT auditing.

CCSP Exam and Certification Requirements:

Candidates take a 4 hour exam consisting of 125 multi-choice questions. Candidates must score a minimum of 700 out of 1000 points to pass.
