This training course will help candidates review and refresh their cloud security knowledge and help identify areas they need to study for the CCSP exam and features:

  • Official (ISC)² courseware
  • Taught by an authorized (ISC)² instructor
  • Student handbook
  • Collaboration with classmates
  • Real-world learning activities and scenarios

Who should attend

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 is most appropriate for those whose day-to-day responsibilities involve procuring, securing and managing cloud environments or purchased cloud services. In other words, CCSPs are heavily involved with the cloud. Many CCSPs will be responsible for cloud security architecture, design, operations, and/or service orchestration.
