Looking for a Cloud Security certification?
You have come to the right place.
CCSK is the ‘mother’ of all cloud security certifications, and has just been updated to version 4.
And what is more: while many people take the CCSK for its certification value, most actually report that it also helps them be more productive in adopting the right level and model of cloud computing.
By understanding the essential cloud and cloud security concepts and applying these in conversations on IT initiatives, your team will reach consensus quicker. Less time is wasted on discussion and doomed cloud initiatives. Proper cloud adoption and governance is accelerated.
Most importantly, the body of knowledge facilitates a common language around cloud and cloud security.
CCSK online training
My online CCSK class helps you to master the CCSK body of knowledge in record time from the comfort of your home (or office). Click here for the shopping cart.
Here’s how it works: the content of all the domains is split into five webinar sessions of approximately 120 minutes each with an additional e-learning support site. But your learning will start as soon as you sign up.
The five sessions are a logical grouping of all the domains in the CCSK version 4 Body of Knowledge.
Each session has presentations, quizzes to test your knowledge, Q&As and suggestions for study, practical exercises and application to your current job. The online sessions are covered over a period of one week. You will find the schedule below. On top of the live sessions, there will be a membership site featuring a private support group (sneak preview here, and a brief overview video here) with your instructor (me: Peter van Eijk), additional practical resources, as well as optional practical work. If you are able to attend all sessions, and do a little preparation in between, you should be able to pass the on-line CCSK exam immediately after the last session. The price of the exam is included in the course, and you can schedule that session at your own convenience.
I am one of the world’s most experienced cloud trainers. In 2010 I was the author of CompTIA Cloud Essentials, and a year later I attended one of the first CCSK Train-the-Trainer sessions. Since then I have delivered CCSK training more than 70 times, across the world as well as many times online. Professionally I am fully dedicated to secure cloud adoption training, and I have contributed to CCSK, CCSP and other cloud training material. Visit my LinkedIN page to see which connections we have in common.
