The Cloud Computing Security Knowledge- 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 CCSK- Basic 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 Cloud Computing Security Knowledge- Plus class builds upon the CCSK Basic class with expanded material and extensive hands-on activities with a second day of training. 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 student’s will spend most of their time assessing, building, and securing a cloud infrastructure during the exercises.
Cloud Computing Security Knowledge- EXTENDED Plus + (4 days)
The CCSK- EXTENDED Plus class builds upon the CCSK Plus class with expanded material and extensive hands-on activities with a third day of training exclusive to Intrinsec Security. Students will learn more about technical controls available to address the security controls as found in ITSG-33 and FedRAMP. In addition to ITSG and FedRAMP discussion, the third day of training includes working with Virtual Private Clouds.
The intended audience for CCSK training is people who wish to learn more about cloud computing in general, and the security aspects that require addressing prior to deployment of any system in a public or private cloud.
