Organizations are looking for qualified professionals to stop criminals from hurting their business - be that guy or girl. Becoming a Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) enables you to understand risks in cloud environments where organizations create, process and store their data and what kind of solutions to implement to reduce the risk of business data getting stolen. 

And if you are interested in joining the c-suite, consider earning a CISSP and/or CISM to improve your skills and value to the enterprise.

Resources I used to study for CCSP:

Tips on how to proceed
  1. Acquire the latest versions of the books mentioned above, study the theories and sit down to fill out practice tests with a pencil. Thereafter look at the back of the books at the answers to find how many you got right/wrong. Go through all tests until you can comfortably score close to a 100% for all tests. 

  2. Follow up on the experiences of other CCSP test takers on reddit. Critical is to sharpen your test-taking skills - most especially, get better at taking less time to answer each question, start with easy questions before attempting others (especially where an exam allows you to skip questions and come back later), quickly skim longer text questions to figure out what question is about, manage your breathing during the test and please dont panic, as this will make you waste precious exam time. 

  3. After passing the CISSP, I took about 3 months of self-paced studying to cover CCSP materials while working a full-time job. Much of the CISSP material overlaps with the CCSP, and thus having passed any of these two certifications, the knowledge is still fresh in the mind and easily be utilized to pass the other. CCSP exam is becoming longer effective 1st August 2022, hurry up if you can sit exam before then.

  4. Earning CSA’s CCSK certificate can be substituted for one year of experience, or how earning (ISC)²’s CISSP credential can be substituted for the entire CCSP experience requirement. there is a total of 10,898 certified cloud security professionals in the world, according to ISC2 member counts. The US has the majority of CCSPs at 5576 while several other countries have one or none at all.
