Introduction

In the ever-changing world of the cloud, you face unique security challenges every day — from new threats to sensitive data, to uneducated internal teams. Take command with the CCSP: the premier cloud security certification. The CCSP is a global credential that represents the highest standard for cloud security expertise. It was co-created by ISC2 and Cloud Security Alliance — leading stewards for information security and cloud computing security. ISC2 and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) developed the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) credential to ensure that cloud security professionals have the required knowledge, skills, and abilities in cloud security design, implementation, architecture, operations, controls, and compliance with regulatory frameworks. A CCSP applies information security expertise to a cloud computing environment and demonstrates competence in cloud security architecture, design, operations, and service orchestration.

 

This professional competence is measured against a globally recognized body of knowledge. The CCSP is a stand-alone credential that complements and builds upon existing credentials and educational programs, including ISC2’s Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and CSA’s Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK).
