Certified Cloud Security Professional

In this CSSP Training course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to successfully pass the CCSP certification exam and become a Certified Cloud Security Professional.

You will learn about common information security risks and mitigation strategies critical to data security in the cloud. You will also explore the six domains of the Official (ISC)²® CCSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK).


  • Receive an (ISC)² exam voucher 

  • Identify and explain the five characteristics required to satisfy the NIST definition of cloud computing

  • Differentiate between various as-a-service delivery models and frameworks that are incorporated into the cloud computing reference architecture

  • Explain strategies for protecting data at rest and data in motion

  • Discuss strategies for safeguarding data, classifying data, ensuring privacy, assuring compliance with regulatory agencies, and working with authorities during legal investigations

  • Compare and contrast forensic analysis in corporate data centers and cloud computing environments

  • Continue learning and face new challenges with after-course one-on-one instructor coaching


To succeed in this course and successfully pass the CCSP exam, you must have at least five years of cumulative, full-time working experience in IT (three of which must be in information security, and one must be in one of the six CCSP CBK domains).

If you don’t have this experience, you should consider becoming an Associate of (ISC)² while working toward the experience needed for full certification.
