CCSK Online Training: Plans and Pricing

Come to the online Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) training. This educational experience has two objectives:

This will benefit your job and your team, and leads to faster and more secure cloud adoption in your company.

You can start now, with immediate access to my learning portal. Then join any of the live online instructor led sessions. The next runs from May 20-24, 2019, then there is one early July, and Q&A sessions between these. More sessions are coming up.

The body of knowledge covers the

  • CSA “Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing v4”,
  • ENISA report “Cloud Computing: Benefits, Risks and Recommendations for Information Security”,
  • Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM).
You will get access to an e-learning platform. This has the official learning material, but also extra learning units. Included in this is:
  • introductory material, explaining concepts that are prerequisite knowledge for the official material,
  • learning units that extend the content for your practical application.
You can attend any of the weeklong sprints (5 daily 2-hour online sessions). These review all the CCSK body of knowledge domains in an interactive way. You will be able to prepare for these sessions in advance. Recordings will be available, and you can interact with the instructor and your fellow participants. Between the sprints, you can attend focus sessions. These focus each on a specific section, and have case studies and Q&A.
The next sprints are May 20-24, 2019 and early July 2019.

CCSK Plus

CCSK Plus extends Foundation. It includes a set of practical labs that run you through building a secure application on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

According to CSA: “The CCSK Plus class builds upon the CCSK Foundation class with expanded material and extensive hands-on activities […]. Students will learn to apply their knowledge as they perform a series of exercises as they complete a scenario bringing a fictional organization securely into the cloud.

In the online training, you will do this in your own pace. As part of the package you will have:
  • extra instructor-led support hours,
  • extra PowerPoints,
  • screen recordings and
  • chat support.

CCSK Plus is also available as a three day classroom training (in-company or Utrecht, Netherlands).

Cloud Security Impact

The most comprehensive package includes everything from CCSK Foundation and Plus and is geared towards professionals who not only want to pass the exam, but who also want to apply what they have learned in their jobs and teams. And that is where the real benefit of CCSK is. This package includes:

  • More exam preparation material
  • More application of CCSK, such as details of how to practically apply the CAIQ for evaluating cloud providers
  • More depth in explaining the material
  • More time to support you
  • More CPE points for your other certifications

You will get access to more learning modules, such as “Cloud Adoption Essentials”. You will get three months of enrollment in my cloud GRC coaching program, which has 2 group calls per month of 1.5 hours each, and 2 1-on-1 calls per month, minimum. These calls will be devoted to better understanding of the entire body of knowledge, so you can pass the exam, and to applying it to your work, so your business can speed up.

We will also discuss cloud governance tooling such as CSA STARWatch for streamlining provider assessments.

Even more value can be created if you take this package with your team members, or better yet, with members of teams that you have to cooperate with.

(Note that this package is not an official CSA package, but it extends CCSK Plus.)

Corporate: the best of the best package

Do you want your organization to be cloud-native, with the resulting benefits? If you are serious about turning around your department or even your whole organization, your requirements probably go further than what these packages can provide you. In that case you can ask about our custom corporate group package. Just fill in the contact form with your requirements and we’ll get back to you.

Peter is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to answer questions and actually work with his students. The course is also an amazing way to learn how AWS actually works and, by the end of the labs, you feel ready to manage your own cloud! The materials are easy to understand and yet technical enough to get real-life security implemented. This was a great course and far beyond most of the accreditation courses I have completed.

Carlo Tyrberg

I attended Peter's CCSK-training and found it very useful, because 1) the sessions gave me more insight on several other aspects of cloud computing than only security, 2) it "inspired" (/forced) me to study the CSA guide/ENISA more thorughly and not least 3) I manage to pass the exam 🙂

Frank Cerney

I had very little to no experience wit the CLOUD, so this training was incredibly valuable to me. My new professional responsibilities are becoming more and more cloud centric. I have a greatly improved level of confidence because I know I have a solid educational foundation that the training and exam preparation has provided for me. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
