Course Overview:

The CCSP exam tests your skills in six domains. The domains draw from a range of cloud security topics within the (ISC)² Common Body of Knowledge (CBK). Here’s a closer look at the CCSP domains and how they’re weighted on the exam:




 1. Architectural Concepts and Design Requirements 


 2. Cloud Data Security 


 3. Cloud Platform and Infrastructure Security 


 4. Cloud Application Security 


 5. Operations 


 6. Legal and Compliance 






Architectural Concepts & Design Requirements – Cloud computing concepts & definitions based on the ISO/IEC 17788 standard; security concepts and principles relevant to secure cloud computing.

  • Understand Cloud Computing Concepts.
  • Describe Cloud Reference Architecture.
  • Understand Security Concepts Relevant to Cloud Computing.
  • Understand Design Principles of Secure Cloud Computing.
  • Identify Trusted Cloud Services.

Cloud Data Security – Concepts, principles, structures, and standards used to design, implement, monitor, and secure, operating systems, equipment, networks, applications, and those controls used to enforce various levels of confidentiality, integrity, and availability in cloud environments.

  • Understand Cloud Data Lifecycle.
  • Design and Implement Cloud Data Storage Architectures.
  • Design and Apply Data Security Strategies.
  • Understand and Implement Data Discovery and Classification Technologies.
  • Design and Implement Relevant Jurisdictional Data Protections for Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
  • Design and Implement Data Rights Management.
  • Plan and Implement Data Retention, Deletion, and Archiving Policies.
  • Design and Implement Auditability, Traceability and Accountability of Data Events.

Cloud Platform & Infrastructure Security – Knowledge of the cloud infrastructure components, both the physical and virtual, existing threats, and mitigating and developing plans to deal with those threats.

  • Comprehend Cloud Infrastructure Components.
  • Analyze Risks Associated to Cloud Infrastructure.
  • Design and Plan Security Controls.

Cloud Application Security – Processes involved with cloud software assurance and validation; and the use of verified secure software.

  • Recognize the need for Training and Awareness in Application Security.
  • Understand Cloud Software Assurance and Validation.
  • Use Verified Secure Software.
  • Comprehend the Software Development Life-Cycle (SDLC) Process.
  • Apply the Secure Software Development Life-Cycle.
  • Comprehend the Specifics of Cloud Application Architecture.
  • Design Appropriate Identity and Access Management (IAM) Solutions.

Operations – Identifying critical information and the execution of selected measures that eliminate or reduce adversary exploitation of it; requirements of cloud architecture to running and managing that infrastructure; definition of controls over hardware, media, and the operators with access privileges as well as the auditing and monitoring are the mechanisms, tools and facilities.

  • Support the Planning Process for the Data Center Design.
  • Implement and Build Physical Infrastructure for Cloud Environment.
  • Run Physical Infrastructure for Cloud Environment.
  • Manage Physical Infrastructure for Cloud Environment.
  • Build Logical Infrastructure for Cloud Environment.

  • Manage Logical Infrastructure for Cloud Environment.
  • Ensure Compliance with Regulations and Controls (e.g., ITIL, ISO/IEC 20000-1).
  • Conduct Risk Assessment to Logical and Physical Infrastructure.
  • Understand the Collection, Acquisition and Preservation of Digital Evidence.
  • Manage Communication with Relevant Parties.

Legal & Compliance – Addresses ethical behavior and compliance with regulatory frameworks. Includes investigative measures and techniques, gathering evidence (e.g., Legal Controls, eDiscovery, and Forensics); privacy issues and audit process and methodologies; implications of cloud environments in relation to enterprise risk management.

  • Understand Legal Requirements and Unique Risks within the Cloud Environment.
  • Understand Privacy Issues, Including Jurisdictional Variation.
  • Understand Audit Process, Methodologies, and Required Adaption’s for a Cloud Environment.
