CCSK Training and Exam

Posted by Jose Malacara
In my last blog post, I wrote about the then-upcoming CCSK training offered by the CSA in San Jose on June 8-10th. Details of the course content can be found here. The training was hosted by Ebay/Paypal and administered by independent security firm, Securosis.
I attended the first two days of training, which were made up of a Basic and Plus session. The first day (Basic) was a high-level overview of cloud computing in general and also went into detail on the topics covered in the CCSK exam. The second day (Plus) was a hands-on session where students worked through the process of deploying servers into the Amazon cloud.

For those of you that will be taking the test soon, how confident are you about passing the exam?Well, thankfully, the CSA has us covered. On June 8-10 the CSA will be

CSA Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge

Posted by Jose Malacara
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you’ve probably heard many companies touting the benefits of cloud computing ad nauseam. These days it seems like everyone has gone nebulous and jump on the cloud computing bandwagon.  While services like Gmail, Netflix and have become household names, how do we as industry professionals sort through the buzz and distinguish true cloud players from those who are just blowing smoke? The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) may have the answer.
In September of 2010, the CSA announced the availability of its Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge, or CCSK, certification. More and more organizations are looking to take advantage of cloud computing in order to lower
