>> Welcome to the Certified
00:00
Cloud Security Professional course.
00:00
Why should you take this course?
00:00
By the end, you'll understand the security operational,
00:00
legal risks associated with
00:00
Cloud deployments and service models.
00:00
More organizations are moving to the Cloud than ever,
00:00
or leveraging Cloud applications for their business.
00:00
This course will help you
00:00
understand many of these aspects.
00:00
You'll be able to identify best practices for
00:00
securing information and Cloud environments.
00:00
Overall, you will gain a holistic view of
00:00
Cloud security threats, vulnerabilities, and risks,
00:00
and more importantly, many of the countermeasures in
00:00
controls to address these risks
00:00
or at least reduce them significantly.
00:00
The average salary for a CCSP holder is
00:00
$118,000 according to payscale.com.
00:00
An important caveat to this is that,
00:00
as we'll see later,
00:00
this certification requires that
00:00
an individual have at least five years of
00:00
IT and IT security
00:00
experienced before even sitting for the exam.
00:00
That level of experience should be baked into
00:00
thinking about that salary.
00:00
Most importantly,
00:00
like anyone who's interested in security,
00:00
this course will help keep
00:00
>> your company out of the news.
00:00
>> There have been so many stories about data breaches
00:00
caused by misconfigurations in Cloud storage,
00:00
Cloud applications, improper APIs
00:00
>> and vendor connections.
00:00
>> We're going to talk about a lot of
00:00
those things in this course.
00:00
The target audience for this course is
00:00
information security professionals, IT professionals,
00:00
if you are someone who is
00:00
an IT security or IT manager who is
00:00
accountable for the security of
00:00
Cloud environments, this course is for you.
00:00
If you're a legal professional
00:00
>> or in a data privacy role,
00:00
>> this will help you understand many of
00:00
the legal risks and
00:00
requirements associated with the Cloud.
00:00
Then compliance and auditing
00:00
professionals will get a better understanding of
00:00
the underlying technology of Cloud computing
00:00
and effective ways to audit these environments.
00:00
Who am I? My name is Graham Wicas.
00:00
I have seven years of experience
00:00
>> in information security.
00:00
>> A lot of that has been focused on protecting the Cloud.
00:00
I currently hold the Certified Cloud Security
00:00
Professional Exam Certification,
00:00
the Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge,
00:00
CISSP, CRISC,
00:00
and CISA, amongst other certifications.
00:00
In addition to certifications,
00:00
I have two graduate degrees.
00:00
I have an MBA and an MS in Business Analytics,
00:00
the application of statistics in business scenarios.
00:00
I am a husband, father, chef,
00:00
fencer, and kettlebell enthusiasts.
00:00
If you want to catch up with it,
00:00
connect with me on LinkedIn.
00:00
My LinkedIn is below,
00:00
and if you want to e-mail me,
00:00
you can e-mail me at cybergraham1@gmail.com.
00:00
What are the learning objectives for this course?
00:00
First and foremost, we're going to understand
00:00
the foundational Cloud technologies,
00:00
service models and deployment models.
00:00
These are really the bedrocks of
00:00
the services that we use in the Cloud,
00:00
as well as the different ways of deploying
00:00
Cloud technology.
00:00
You're going to be able to
00:00
demonstrate knowledge of the risks,
00:00
responsibilities associated with protecting
00:00
data in the Cloud.
00:00
You want to be able to demonstrate
00:00
knowledge of the threats, vulnerabilities,
00:00
and risks associated with
00:00
Cloud security, infrastructure related threats.
00:00
Basically, one of the main benefits
00:00
of the Cloud is that you achieve
00:00
economies of scale and cost efficiency by
00:00
leveraging in other organizations infrastructures,
00:00
but it's very important to
00:00
understand the threats and risks
00:00
associated with leveraging
00:00
another organization's infrastructure.
00:00
You're going to be able to demonstrate
00:00
knowledge of the threats, vulnerabilities,
00:00
and risks associated with Cloud-based applications.
00:00
We're going to go into lot on
00:00
the threats to Cloud-based applications,
00:00
how they are safely develop and improve
00:00
the security of Cloud applications as well.
00:00
Then ultimately,
00:00
you're going to be able to demonstrate knowledge of
00:00
the legal and compliance risks
00:00
that come with Cloud computing.
00:00
What are the prerequisites
00:00
to get the most out of this course,
00:00
as well as sit for the CCSP exam.
00:00
Well, in terms of this course,
00:00
you really just need to desire to learn about
00:00
Cloud technologies and security.
00:00
To sit for the exam, however,
00:00
you need to certify that you have
00:00
a minimum of five years experience in IT,
00:00
or at least and including at least three years in
00:00
information security or your IT security experience.
00:00
You may be an IT professional
00:00
who has experience with security.
00:00
There are six domains in
00:00
the CCSP and you will need to demonstrate that
00:00
you have at least one year of
00:00
experience involved in one of those six domains.
00:00
Another caveat to this is that if you already
00:00
have another ISC squared
00:00
certification, specifically the CISSP,
00:00
that certification requires you to
00:00
already certified that to you
00:00
>> have at least five years of
00:00
>> experience and that certification
00:00
will carry over to getting
00:00
the Certified Cloud Security Professional
00:00
Certification Exam
00:00
or at least sitting for it, I should say.
00:00
There are some other caveats that help
00:00
reduce the number of years of experience.
00:00
If you have a bachelor's degree,
00:00
I believe that counts for one-year,
00:00
some master's degrees also count.
00:00
Then if you have the Certificate
00:00
of Cloud Security Knowledge,
00:00
the CCSK, that counts as one year of experience.
00:00
The Cloud Security Alliance
00:00
created that certification and
00:00
the CCSP was created in conjunction and
00:00
partnership between ISC squared
00:00
and the Cloud Security Alliance.
00:00
That's why they acknowledged
00:00
the experience you gained
00:00
from gaining that certification.
00:00
Let's go over the course outline here.
00:00
As I said, there are six domains
00:00
in the Certified Cloud Security Professional Exam,
00:00
and that is exactly how the course is broken out.
00:00
There is overlap amongst these domains and you may see
00:00
some topics that are touched on
00:00
>> upon over and over again.
00:00
>> That's because many of these things are
00:00
overlapping in their implications are different areas.
00:00
In Module one, we're going to talk about
00:00
the Cloud concepts, architecture, and design.
00:00
Module two, we're focused on Cloud data security.
00:00
What's your most important data?
00:00
Where is it and how do you
00:00
protect it in Cloud environments?
00:00
In Module three, we're going to talk about
00:00
Cloud platforms and infrastructure security.
00:00
Because you have to leverage the infrastructure of
00:00
a Cloud services provider or
00:00
maybe you are a Cloud services provider,
00:00
you need to make sure that the infrastructure and
00:00
physical security of the data center is appropriate.
00:00
Then Module four, we're going to talk
00:00
about Cloud application security,
00:00
whether you're using applications
00:00
or developing applications.
00:00
This module will help you understand and make
00:00
the best practices when it comes to
00:00
Cloud application security and
00:00
the various threats to Cloud application security.
00:00
In Module five, we want to kind
00:00
of bring it all together and put you in
00:00
the mindset of someone who is accountable for
00:00
maintaining the security of the Cloud,
00:00
detecting threats, incident response,
00:00
disaster recovery, and how do you
00:00
really maintain Cloud operations.
00:00
Then we'll finish with Module six.
00:00
These are the legal risk and compliance
00:00
aspects of the Cloud environment.
00:00
It'll really give you a sense of
00:00
all the different regulations
00:00
that may be relevant to the data you have in
00:00
the Cloud and differences amongst
00:00
regulatory bodies across the world really.
00:00
There are going to be two main
00:00
>> feast of course material.
00:00
>> You'll have a syllabus that will lay out
00:00
all the different individual lessons and read to
00:00
the modules and then there'll be references
00:00
to many of the standards and frameworks,
00:00
as well as other resources
00:00
related to topics in this course.
00:00
You'll find those in the reference section.
00:00
In summary, we're going to talk about the benefits of
00:00
the Certified Cloud Security Professional exam
00:00
and just Cloud Security Knowledge in general.
00:00
When we talked about the six domains
00:00
in this certification.
00:00
Then we talked about the
00:00
experienced professional requirements is
00:00
actually sit for and take the CCSP exam.
00:00
We have a lot to cover in this course.
00:00
I really hope you're excited to learn.
00:00
I will see you in the next lesson.
