There is a lot of hype and uncertainty around cloud security, but this class will slice through the hyperbole and provide students with the practical knowledge they need to understand the real cloud security issues and solutions. The Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) – Basic class provides students a comprehensive one day review of cloud security fundamentals and prepares them to take the Cloud Security Alliance CCSK certification exam. Starting with a detailed description of cloud computing, the course covers all major domains in the latest Guidance document from the Cloud Security Alliance, 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). The Basic Class is a one-day class, ending April 8.
The CCSK-Plus class builds upon the CCSK Basic class with expanded material and extensive hands-on activities with a second day of training. The Plus class enhances the classroom instruction with real world cloud security labs! 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. This second day of training includes additional lecture, although students will spend most of their time assessing, building, and securing a cloud infrastructure during the exercises. Activities include creating and securing private clouds and public cloud instances, as well as encryption, applications, identity management and much more. The Plus Class is a two-day class, ending April 9.
The CCSK Instructor workshop adds a third day on April 10 to train prospective trainers. More detail about how to teach the course will be presented, as well as a detailed look into the hands-on labs, and an opportunity for all trainers to present a portion of the course.
