    About (ISC)2

    (ISC)² was founded in 1989. The founders saw the need for standardization and certification in the cybersecurity industry. Since then, founders and members have been shaping the information security profession.

    (ISC)² is an international, nonprofit membership association for information security leaders like you. We’re committed to helping our members learn, grow and thrive. More than 150,000 certified members strong, we empower professionals who touch every aspect of information security. 

    About the (ISC)2-CCSP

    (ISC)² and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) developed and launched the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) credential to build on (ISC)²’s Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and CSA’s Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK). This standalone credential was designed to ensure that cloud security professionals have the required knowledge, skills, and experience in cloud security design, implementation, architecture, operations, controls, and compliance with regulatory frameworks. Since the co-development and launch of CCSP, (ISC)² continues to maintain and update the exam and training materials to ensure ISO accreditation.

    A CCSP has the advanced technical skills and knowledge to design, manage and secure data, applications and infrastructure in the cloud using best practices, policies and procedures established by the cybersecurity experts at (ISC)². A CCSP applies information security expertise to a cloud computing environment and demonstrates competence in cloud architecture, design, operations, data security, risk and compliance. This professional competence is measured against a globally recognized body of knowledge.

    The CBK contains 6 domains: 

    1. Cloud Concepts, Architecture and Design
    2. Cloud Data Security
    3. Cloud Platform & Infrastructure Security
    4. Cloud Application Security
    5. Cloud Security Operations
    6. Legal, Risk & Compliance

    For the past 4 years in a row, the CCSP has been touted as “the next big thing” in Certification Magazine’s annual salary issue. In fact, it has been the fastest-growing certification in (ISC)²’s history, with record growth to 1,000 certified and to 8,000 certified milestones.

    Experience Requirements

    Candidates must have a minimum of 5 years’ cumulative paid work or paid/unpaid internship experience in information technology, of which 3 years must be in information security and 1 year in 1 or more of the 6 domains of the CCSP CBK. Earning CSA’s CCSK certificate can be substituted for 1 year of experience in 1 or more of the 6 domains of the CCSP CBK. Earning (ISC)²’s CISSP credential can be substituted for the entire CCSP experience requirement.
    A candidate who doesn’t have the required experience to become a CCSP may become an Associate of (ISC)² by successfully passing the CCSP examination. The Associate of (ISC)² will then have 6 years to earn the 5 years of required experience.

    CCSP Key Features

    The CCSP exam uses Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) for all English exams.  The duration of the exam is up to 3 hours (180 minutes). You will be introduced with 125 questions (multiple choice and advanced innovative questions). In order to pass the exam you must get 700 marks (out of 1000).

    Further Information

    While numerous cloud certificates and certifications exist to show proficiency using various vendors’ cloud platforms, many only touch on information security as part of a broader cloud knowledge base, and in a theoretical way (e.g. AWS, Certified Cloud Professional, CompTIA Cloud+, Azure). The CCSP is vendor-neutral and focuses on industry best practices for securing cloud environments. It’s intended for professionals more heavily involved in cloud security via roles that are accountable for protecting enterprise architectures.
    The CCSP provides employers with a reliable indicator of candidates’ overall competency in cloud security. This ensures they put the right people in place who can leverage the benefits of cloud computing and possess the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to address the security and business issues associated with the complexities of cloud computing. The CCSP simplifies and improves the hiring process for both public and private sector organizations.
