CCSK Foundation

Course Overview

The Cloud Computing Security Knowledge – Foundation class provides students a comprehensive one day review of cloud security fundamentals and prepares them to take the Cloud Security Alliance CCSK certificate exam. Starting with a detailed description of cloud computing, the course covers all major domains in the 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).

This second day of training includes additional lecture, although student’s will spend most of their time assessing, building, and securing a cloud infrastructure during the exercises.
