Globally Recognized Proficiency in Cloud Security
CCSP is a “next-step” credential for two industry-leading certifications of information systems and cloud computing security: (ISC)² and CSA. The CCSP credential reflects cloud security in a global environment, which is especially important given the legal, regulatory and compliance concerns that come with multi-jurisdictional housing of personally identifiable information (PII).
The CCSP exam tests competence in six CCSP domains of the (ISC)² Common Body of Knowledge (CBK):
- Architectural Concepts & Design Requirements
- Cloud Data Security
- Cloud Platform & Infrastructure Security
- Cloud Application Security
- Legal & Compliance
