Foreword

EVERY DAY AROUND THE WORLD, organizations are taking steps to leverage cloud infrastructure, software, and services. This is a substantial undertaking that also heightens the complexity of protecting and securing data. As powerful as cloud computing is to organizations, it’s essential to have qualified people who understand information security risks and mitigation strategies for the cloud. As the largest not-for-profit membership body of certified information security professionals worldwide, (ISC)2 recognizes the need to identify and validate information security competency in securing cloud services.

To help facilitate the knowledge you need to ensure strong information security in the cloud, I’m pleased to present the Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CCSP CBK. Drawing from a comprehensive, up-to-date global body of knowledge, the CCSP CBK ensures that you have the right information security knowledge and skills to be successful and prepares you to achieve the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) credential.

(ISC)2 is proud to collaborate with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) to build a unique credential that reflects the most current and comprehensive best practices for securing and optimizing cloud computing environments. To attain CCSP certification, candidates must have a minimum of five years’ experience in IT, of which three years must be in information security and one year in cloud computing. All CCSP candidates must be able to demonstrate capabilities found in each of the six Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) domains:

  • Architectural Concepts and Design Requirements
  • Cloud Data Security
  • Cloud Platform and Infrastructure Security
  • Cloud Application Security
  • Operations
  • Legal and Compliance

The CCSP credential represents advanced knowledge and competency in cloud security design, implementation, architecture, operations, controls, and immediate and long-term responses.

Cloud computing has emerged as a critical area within IT that requires further security considerations. According to the 2015 (ISC)2 Global Information Security Workforce Study, cloud computing is identified as the top area for information security, with a growing demand for education and training within the next three years. In correlation to the demand for education and training, 73 percent of more than 13,000 survey respondents believe that cloud computing will require information security professionals to develop new skills.

If you are ready to take control of the cloud, The Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CCSP CBK prepares you to securely implement and manage cloud services within your organization’s information technology (IT) strategy and governance requirements. CCSP credential holders will achieve the highest standard for cloud security expertise—managing the power of cloud computing while keeping sensitive data secure.

The recognized leader in the field of information security education and certification, (ISC)2 promotes the development of information security professionals throughout the world. As a CCSP with all the benefits of (ISC)2 membership, you would join a global network of more than 110,000 certified professionals who are working to inspire a safe and secure cyber world.

Qualified people are the key to cloud security. This is your opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills you need to protect and secure data in the cloud.

Regards,
