Next-Level Cloud Security with CCSP

You’ve proven your expertise in cybersecurity…now prove yourself as the authority in cloud security for your organization. If you haven’t considered expanding your expertise to the cloud, now is the time.

The Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) credential was designed to build on your deep technical and managerial CISSP knowledge and position you at the highest level of mastery for cloud security. By earning your CCSP, you’ll validate expert skills to design, manage and secure data, applications and infrastructure in the cloud using best practices, policies and procedures.

PLUS…as a CISSP, you have a distinct advantage, you already meet the CCSP experience requirements making you immediately eligible to sit for the examination. AND, as a certified (ISC)² member, you’ll only pay one AMF, and your CISSP CPEs are transferrable to the CCSP.
