Free training spotlight:
Certified Cloud Security Professional

September 19, 2017

By Jordan Schwartz

This just in: “The growing use of cloud services for data storage and increasing sophistication of cyber-attacks will lead the cloud security market to rise from $1.4B in 2016 to $12B in 2024.”

What does this mean for you*?

*You = a security administrator, consultant or engineer, or an ambitious engineering or systems professional

Basically, if you’re knee-deep in cloud security ... you’ve got a good gig going. (And, on a personal note, thank you for your protective services.)

As a cloud professional, have you considered obtaining the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) certification? With the huge increase in cloud spending, it really couldn’t be a better time to break open the ‘ole dusty textbook and enhance your career with this credential.

Hear me and (ISC)2 out:

  • CCSP is a global credential and many people feel it represents the highest standard for cloud security
  • It’s vendor-neutral
  • As (ISC)2 says, the certification will “prove you’re on the forefront of cloud security”

If you’re a current TEKsystems consultant, you have access to a CCSP training course for free courtesy of our partnership with Skillsoft. The training is expansive and incorporates the following domains:

  • Cloud system architecture—concepts and design
  • Cloud data security
  • Cloud system security—platform and infrastructure
  • Cloud application security
  • Cloud service—operations management
  • Cloud service—legal and compliance

As a side note: many who pursue the CCSP find it useful for working with organizations that practice DevSecOps, Agile or bimodal IT. Current TEKsystems consultants can access Skillsoft—as well as information about your benefits and assignment—via your Community portal. If you haven't accessed the portal yet, ask your recruiter to re-send your unique login.
