Cloud Computing Security Knowledge - Foundation

The Cloud Computing Security Knowledge Basic class provides students a comprehensive one day review of cloud security fundamentals and prepares them to take the Cloud Security Alliance CCSK certification exam. Starting with a detailed description of cloud computing, the course covers all major domains in the latest Guidance document from the Cloud Security Alliance, and the recommendations from the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA). This class is geared towards security professionals, but is also useful for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of cloud security. (We recommend attendees have at least a basic understanding of security fundamentals, such as firewalls, secure development, encryption, and identity management).

CSA Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) Stack Course

Outsourcing critical business functions into the cloud can present challenges in creating and sustaining assurance and control over legal and regulatory obligations for data management and protection. The real challenge, however, is the creation of trust in the cloud through transparency and evidence-based confidence that everything that is claimed to be happening is, indeed, happening … and nothing else. The end result of such trust generation is the creation and capture of real payoffs for the consuming enterprise, and greater market utility for the provider enterprise! The CSA GRC stack and practice is designed to generate and make evident those layers of trust and transparency between Cloud Service Providers and their customers. In this one day course, you will learn how to leverage the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) GRC Stack, giving you a snap shot into emerging cloud standards development efforts, and the CSA Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (STAR) to help you meet your organization's due diligence requirements associated with trustworthy cloud supply chain adoption. This course will be broken into two (2) half day sessions, first an overview session followed by a hands-on learning exercise to apply knowledge and use of the CSA GRC Stack and STAR that was introduced in the first part of the class. This course can be taken as a stand-alone course or as a follow on to the CSA Cloud Computing Security Knowledge (CCSK) Basic or Plus classes. Discounts are available for students that register for the CCSK Plus Class being taught in conjunction with the GRC Stack course, use discount code GRCSTACK to receive a $100 discount off the Plus class price (Only one discount code per registrant).
