Overview

CCSP certification course at ISSS aims to impart understanding of information, cyber, software and cloud computing infrastructure security. Explaining the cloud computing concepts, cloud reference architecture, cloud computing security concepts and cloud services are the focus area of the Certified Cloud Security Professional course delivery.

Agenda:

• 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
