EC-Council’s Certified Cloud Security Engineer (CCSE) course deliver a mix of vendor-neutral and vendor-specific cloud security concepts. The vendor-neutral concepts focus on cloud security practices, technologies, frameworks, and principles. In contrast, the vendor-specific materials deliver the practical skills that are needed to configure specific platforms, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This offers candidates a well-balanced mix of theoretical and practical skills. In addition, advanced topics also cover modules on securing the cloud infrastructure by implementing regulations and standards to maintain security. EC-Council’s cloud security course is mapped to the real-time job roles and responsibilities of cloud security professionals and is ideal for beginners as well as experienced cybersecurity professionals.

Why Should You Become a Certified Cloud Security Engineer (CCSE)?
Organizations need cloud security engineers to help them build a secure cloud infrastructure, monitor vulnerabilities, and implement incidence response plans to mitigate cloud-based threats. CCSE, with its unique blend of vendor-neutral and vendor-specific concepts, trains candidates in the fundamentals while equipping them with job-ready practical skills. With CCSE, delegates learn:
01 – The fundamentals of cloud security in a vendor-neutral environment
02 – How to use tools and techniques to configure public cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, and GCP
03 – How to design and maintain a secure cloud environment
04 – The knowledge and skills to protect, detect, and respond to cloud network infrastructure threats
05 – How to design and implement business continuity and disaster recovery plans
06 – How to perform a cloud security audit and penetration testing
Why CCSE is the Perfect Choice for Cloud Security Engineers
