EC-Council’s brand-new Cloud Security-oriented program

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, digital business transformation has entered a more challenging and urgent phase. The increasing number of smartphones and other devices connected to the Internet is driving the trend of enterprise digitization, generating a large amount of business data every day.

Emerging technologies such as big data, AI, and machine learning (ML) are gaining traction. Thus, the global cloud computing market size is expected to grow to USD 1.25 Tn by 2028. Cloud computing helps businesses use remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage and process critical data. Moreover, it turns out that 60% of the market is dominated by 3 major cloud players which are AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.

Indeed, enterprises are rapidly embracing cloud computing solutions to scale their business, as cloud security plays a significant role in managing and mitigating risks, protecting cloud against both external and internal cybersecurity threats, and blocking unauthorized access to confidential information.

Nevertheless, it was found that still 65% of cloud network security breaches occur as a result of user errors, and 33% believe their organization has been impacted by the lack of staff with cloud specialized skills.

Under these circumstances, EC-Council has launched a brand-new specialist-level training program, Certified Cloud Security Engineer - C|CSE, to meet the increasing demand for cloud security professionals.

This specialization equips cloud and IT professionals with in-demand skills associated with the cloud and will help organizations build a robust in-house cloud security team.

The CCSE curriculum explore the core concepts of cloud computing, cloud service models, and cloud-based vulnerabilities. It discusses the service provider components like evaluation, and the shared responsibility model to safeguard and organization’s resources.

The aim of this 5-days training, mapped with real-time job roles and responsibilities of cloud security professional, is to learn how to create a secure infrastructure.

The CCSE course demonstrates how tools, techniques, and procedures can be applied to major and widely used public cloud service providers (AWS, Azure, GCP) through vendor-neutral and vendor-specific training.
