CCSK Courses

CCSK Foundation

The CCSK Foundation class provides students a comprehensive one day review of cloud security fundamentals and prepares them to take the CSA CCSK exam. Starting with a detailed description of cloud computing, the course covers all major domains in the latest Guidance document from the CSA, a general overview of the structure and function of CSA’s Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) document, and the recommendations from the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA). This class is geared towards security professionals, but is also useful for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of cloud security. (We recommend attendees have at least a basic understanding of security fundamentals, such as firewalls, secure development, encryption, and identity management)

Minimum Duration: One Day

The CCSK Plus course includes all the content of the CCSK Foundation course and adds expanded lecture material and extensive hands-on lab activities which are integrated with the CCSK Foundation lecture modules as appropriate. Students will learn to apply CCSK Foundation knowledge by performing a series of exercises that are part of a scenario which brings a fictional organization securely into the cloud. Although CCSK Plus training includes some additional lecture content, students will spend most of their additional time assessing, building, and securing a cloud infrastructure during the exercises.

Minimum Duration: Two Days
