Just wanted to know if there are any members out there who are considering doing the CCSP exam. I do believe this cert has the potential to be the most valuable accreditation for a security professional. Being aware of the digital/cloud security landscape is now a necessity for our profession and having the badge to prove it will provide tangible evidence of capability in this space. In my opinion ISCx2 will now need to sell the value of the badge and fully leverage the association with the cloud security alliance CSA. I've just done the exam, so happy to share my experience (without contravening our code of ethics) with anyone who is also considering doing it.
Be safe & secure!
I hope to take this exam as time permits. Working on the SSCP first. I agree with you about the importance of being proficient in cloud administration. Vendors such as Microsoft have been adding content for Azure in their Windows Server 2012 r2 and Windows Server 16 exams and adding specializations in Azure from the developer perspective as well.
Hello AppSecGirl - I used two books that came with practice exams. One authored by Gordon (which was the official book at the time); which was incredibly hard to read because the long winded approach. The other was by Sybex (a wiley brand); which was more condensed half the number of pages and more questions including an online option.
Hope this helps.
Good luck with your studies!
I went through the studying process a while back and passed. Here is a a summary on what I did to pass a a couple of tips. Hopes this helps.
I'll be glad to help answer any questions or help with approaches.
Thinking about sitting it in the future (but not 100% certain with the renewal cost, etc). I actually started with browsing the official book and the also the CCSP All in One Study guide test question bank.
I stopped for the moment because I wanted to get my hands dirty with cloud tech to deepen my understanding of functionality before do this certification, so I am now doing AWS training for certification and perhap then I will get back onto this high level cert.
All in all it covers a lot of cloud high level stuff.
