10,000 Cloud Security Certified Professionals

(ISC)², the world’s largest non-profit membership association of certified cyber security professionals has just announced this achievement. More than 10,000 cyber security professionals have earned their Certified Cloud Security Professional certification since it was introduced in 2015. 

The prestigious CCSP is widely regarded as the number one ranked certification that IT professionals plan to achieve next in their career.

“As organisations continue to migrate workloads to the cloud, it becomes crucial to have cloud security experts who not only understand how to secure data, systems and services in the cloud, but also understand how information is stored and accessed across platforms in every part of the cloud ecosystem,” said Clar Rosso, CEO of (ISC)². 

(ISC)² created the CCSP to meet a critical market need to ensure that cloud security professionals have the required knowledge, skills and abilities to audit, assess and secure cloud infrastructures. 

“It’s no surprise cloud security skills are in high demand, and organisations are willing to pay top dollar for these skills. Job applicants with a CCSP certification stand out among their peers. They demonstrate to employers that they possess the vendor-agnostic domain knowledge to understand cloud platforms and how to secure them.” Roso said.

The CCSP exam tests candidates on six domains: cloud security operations, legal risk and compliance, cloud concepts architecture and design, cloud data security, cloud platform and infrastructure security and cloud application security. It ensures a detailed and comprehensive knowledge of cloud security, covering frameworks, concepts and models. It’s a ideal complement to the CISSP qualification  also offered by (ISC)².

The CCSP gives cybersecurity experts higher maturity in cloud adoption and security, and enables them to explain the advantages and risks of the cloud model to executives, CFOs and CEOs. “It’s not just a technical certification, it gives participants a big picture technical and strategic vision. I would even recommend CCSP to mid and upper-level management, so they understand the cloud environment and everything that orbits around it.”says Luis Gonsalves, PhD, Head of Cybersecurity, IT Risk and Compliance for Banco de Portugal. 

(ISC)² is an international non-profit membership association focused on inspiring a safe and secure cyber world. 
Membership is more than 160,000 strong and is made up of cyber, information, software and infrastructure security professionals who are making a difference and helping to advance the industry.
