RedLegg’s announces the availability of the Cloud Security Alliance’s Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) training class. The CCSK course is intended to assist professionals in successfully completing the CCSK examination and gaining practical experience in securing cloud computing. The industry’s first user certification program for secure cloud computing, the CCSK is designed to ensure that a broad range of professionals with responsibility related to cloud computing have a demonstrated awareness of the security threats and best practices for securing the cloud.

As cloud computing is being aggressively adopted, it is critical that the industry provide training and certification of professionals to assure that cloud computing is implemented responsibly with the appropriate security controls. The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) has developed a widely adopted catalogue of security best practices, the Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing, V2.1. In addition, the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) whitepaper “Cloud Computing: Benefits, Risks and Recommendations for Information Security” is an important contribution to the cloud security body of knowledge. The CCSK provides evidence that an individual has successfully completed an examination covering the key concepts of the CSA guidance and ENISA whitepaper.

“Critical services are being provided via the cloud, creating an urgent need for cloud security skills among IT professionals,” said Jim Reavis, CSA executive director. “The CCSK is a low cost certification that establishes a robust baseline of cloud security knowledge. Combined with existing professional certifications, it helps provide necessary assurance of user competency in this important area of growth.”
