Overview

On this 2-day accelerated Firebrand course for CSA's Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) exam, you'll validate your understanding of the best practices surrounding cloud security. This Firebrand course, designed to deliver knowledge equivalent to the CSA's CCSK Basic and the CCSK Plus, aims to ensure that you have a demonstrated awareness of the security threats facing your cloud infrastructure.

On this Firebrand course you'll cover:

  • A comprehensive review of cloud security fundamentals
  • The major domains in the latest Guidance document from Cloud Security Alliance (CSA)
  • Recommendations from the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA)
  • Expanded material and hands-on tasks in a series of exercises that include bringing a fictional organisation securely into the cloud.

Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique combines both theoretical knowledge with practical, hands-on skills. This technique will accelerate your learning and ensure you have the ability to apply your new found knowledge as soon as you return to work.

As part of Firebrand' own course, you'll be prepared for and sit the CSA Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) exam. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee.

This course is aimed at a broad range of professionals with responsibilities related to cloud computing and security.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online CCSK courses
  2. You'll be CCSK certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be CCSK trained in record time
  3. Our CCSK course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass CCSK first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn CCSK faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying CCSK with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76,845 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
