Re: CCSP

I took the official ISC2 course for the CCSP when they were aggressively promoting it for current CISSP members.  It was a 5 day, instructor led course.  For myself, the interaction between class members and the instructor was much more stimulating than the course material.

 

Over the next 30 days after the course, I read, and re-read the official ISC2 book.  I then utilized the free study tools provided by ISC2.  I took the practice exams multiple times, but put a lot of time into flash cards.

 

I wouldn't go so far as to say that the exam was easy, but the steps above had me fully prepared.  I believe that having already obtained my CISSP provided some benefit from a testing methodology perspective, as I had a general idea of what to expect.

As soon as I’ve finished the CISSP, I’m turning around and writting the CCSP. With my organization moving to cloud platforms, I believe the certificatation will be invaluable

Re: CCSP

Passed this exam some two and a half month ago. Find it more or less similar to CISSP. Infact it would not be totally wrong to perceive this exam as CISSP for cloud technologies.
My two cents of advice for all the aspirants is to merge CISSP concepts with CCSP books.

Re: CCSP

There is an e-symposium that covers Cloud Security where they talk about the increase of SaaS traffic over the next decade (it is an excellent symposium and you get 3 CE's).  After I earn my OSCP, my CCSP is next on my list.  If you are going to do anything, be sure to look into CASB's.  I have had to recommend we nix a couple of projects because we do not have one of these in place, yet!

 

Good luck

Re: CCSP

CCSP will be in demand as more and more companies are looking towards cloud and cloud solutions. I believe it is a good cert to have. I will be taking mine in Jan 2018.

Re: CCSP

I'd love to hear how your experience was!  I'm studying on my own for the CCSP.  Got the (ISC)2 study guide earlier this year -- the one written by Brian T. O'Hara and Ben Malisow.  I've read through it and have been taking practice exams through Sybex's website.  Last week, I scheduled my exam for mid-December.

 

Do you have any advice/pointers that you could share with me?

Re: CCSP

Hi BubbaK,

Of the valuable advise my instructor gave me, the most fundamental was read the CSA guide; it’s a joint ISC2 and CSA exam so the content is very largely covered in the guide. The exam is up to v3 of the guide.

Aside from that, be familiar with the CSA terminologies for cloud technology (storage types, service types etc).

Good luck and reach out if you’d like any other tips!
