The CCSK credential will provide foundational requirements for any future certifications that focus on specific professions, management or technical skills.
Cloud Security (CCSK) the industry's first Cloud Security certification
The CCSK is strongly supported by a broad coalition of experts and organisations from around the world. The collaboration between CSA and ENISA means that the world's two leading organisations for vendor-neutral Cloud Security research are providing the foundation for the industry's first Cloud Security certification.

The CCSK is not a substitute for other certifications in information security, audit and governance.
Cloud Security (CCSK) CPE credits that can be applied to other certifications
Other certifying bodies will provide CPE credits for the one-hour to take the CCSK test and the other hours required to study for the test.
Cloud Security (CCSK) training feedback from participants
'The training was useful to understand cloud structure a bit more in detail. I will use this information in my organisation.''The Cloud Security training helped to get a better understanding of both; cloud and security.''This training will help us to develop a security strategy and architecture and provide us with the bullet point to address these better.'
Cloud Security (CCSK) training in-house

It saves time and money;
Enables you to train in the comfort of your own working environment;
Can be arranged for groups of 5 people or more;
Will take place at a time chosen by and convenient for you; and
