I had studied for the CCSK earlier in the year and read the CSA guide, and ENISA guide. Rather than re-read the CSA guide I just re-read some of the areas I felt were my weakest. Anyways, when I signed up for the exam I decided to do v3 as that is the guide I had read. I took the v3 exam on July 5th and missed passing by 4 points. The exam questions seemed really tricky, with quite a few that I couldn’t remember from the material so when I looked them up, I couldn’t find. As well, there were quite a few questions where there were technically two right answers, or the answers were almost the same.

I regathered and went to re-take the exam last Friday since you get two attempts. However when I would go to launch my second attempt, it was only selecting v4. I looked all around and couldn’t find a way to re-take v3. I checked out the v4 guide and skimmed through and it looked a lot cleaner than the v3 guide, but seemed about 90% the same. Rather than contact support I decided to chance it and just take the v4 in hopes that they improved the exam too since the guide seemed improved. Man was I right! The v4 exam was of much higher quality. The questions were cleaner and more straight forward, the answers that I did look up to double check were in fact found within the v4 study guide, and I didn’t see any questions that seemed like they had two correct or near identical answers. Passed it with an 88%.

Sooooo if anyone is going for the CCSK, I recommend going for v4.]]>

can anyone of you guys here from India recommend any good Cloud computing training places in India?

I am planning a holiday there which I would like to combine with some Cloud certification.

I need a very reputable training place though. I have done lots of my certification training in the past in India where it gives me much time to focus on my trainings, I am now looking to tape into Cloud like AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Your good advices will be highly appreciated.]]>

The questions were tougher than I had expected, maybe tougher than the questions on the CompTIA Cloud+ exam. If I had not reviewed all the questions and changed some answers, I would have failed. I submitted my exam with 20 minutes remaining.

me again.

I'm going to be able to take one official AWS training course this year. I was thinking of the Sysops training. Reason because apparently the Sysops Exam is the toughest of the associate exams and I'm just starting out with my AWS 'career'.

I'm very torn between the Advanced Architecting and the Sysops Admin training. Since I "only" get to attend one training, I want to get the most out of it. The Advanced training does sound very appealing but I'm not sure if it might be too advanced just yet. I can't take it before August though, so I do intend to have at least the SA associate exam under my belt till then.

Anyone one took both and can compare and give some insight/thoughts?

Thanks!]]>

I have been doing Help Desk for over 10 years now but I have never really progressed my skills beyond what my job required of me. I am now ready to jump on the cert train and finally do something. I am currently studying for my Net +. I was wondering if anyone can help me with what cert route I should go on from here? I assume Cloud + next, but then I'm wondering, do I need to move onto any Microsoft Server certs (MCSA, MCSE), or could I go straight into AWS or Azure certs?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.]]>

It's open book and I've been in a myriad of roles within SaaS companies for 16 years (first ASP, then SaaS).

Decided to go for the ISC2 CCSP after passing CISSP (still waiting for processing), so I figured I'd do CCSK as well while in the process of studying since the information is included in the CCSP material.

Read the CSA V3 document (a bit of dry read) from the website and read about 1/3 of the ENISA document (risks, I've been in this environment a long time) and decided to go for it since you get two attempts anyway.

Next up CCSP.]]>
Passed CCSK https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/120488/passed-ccsk Tue, 14 Jun 2016 22:52:02 +0000 Cloud Certifications Rufio 120488@/discussions
I used three resources: (1) CSA's Security Guidance for critical areas of focus in cloud computing V3.0, (2) the ENISA guide (read pages 1-70ish), and (3) I purchased the "Fast Track CCSK Certification: the Ultimate guide for cloud certificate" on Amazon.

(1) Is obviously the most important. I enjoyed the content in most sections. Some were very repetitive and a little exhausting...icon_wink.gif

(2) ENISA was a really helpful reference for understanding cloud security. The questions that start around page 70 are helpful for everyday work, but I didn't read them as a part of my study.

(3) DO NOT PURCHASE....it's only 10$ but I felt it was really poor material. Bad grammar, bad spelling, and it really didn't add much if anything to my study. Yes it's brief, but I wouldn't recommend it. I read the thing in a night but would have preferred buying more Dr Pepper and studying resource (1). I'd give it a 2-3 stars out of 5. Stick with resource (1) and know it well enough to know where certain material is.

I found that if I generally knew a section really well, I could navigate to the section where I thought an answer may be and then search their rather than searching through the whole document. I know this is obvious, but it was super helpful. You don't have time to look up everything.

The test wasn't overwhelmingly difficult and could be passed with 2-4 weeks of SOLID study. I went through the whole test in an hour and had about 30 minutes left over. I used the 30 minutes to review 15 questions I had marked for review. Some of them I was able to confirm and I only changed about 4. I finished with 15 minutes to spare. Missed 6, so 90%. I studied on and off for about 4 weeks. Wish I would have put my head down and knocked it out in 2.

I know I said it wasn't overwhelmingly difficult, but if this is your first introduction to cloud, it may be more challenging. I currently manage security and risk in a smaller Healthcare/Benefits organization and review cloud solutions regularly. One thing I would add for help, CSA added this portion to their website:

Passed my CCSK Exam https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/130273/passed-my-ccsk-exam Mon, 04 Dec 2017 04:13:10 +0000 Cloud Certifications burnol2 130273@/discussions
I researched alot to see a difference between CCSP and CCSK and chose CCSK because it is well established in the market and has good reputation. I might go for CCSP later if i feel the need of. From the exam preparation point of view, i studied CSA guide V3.0 and ENISA paper. The composition of exam is 92% questions will be from CSA guide and remaining from ENISA paper. Few of the modules/chapters in CSA guide are very well written and provides a good perspective about general concepts of cloud security, few of the remaining i found to be too repetitive or complexed (IdEA chapter for instance is poorly written).

I studied for one month (not regular), gone through both guide and the paper cover by cover and noted few stuff on white paper as notes. Then before appearing for the exam i went through all the recommendations and summary points of each chapter one more time and skimmed through the notes i made. Since CSA offers two attempts and there are no practice questions/**** available to prepare yourself with the mindset of the exam so mentally i was prepared to fail it in first attempt, luckily i passed it with 95%.

There are 90 questions to be answered in 60 minutes, the exam is unproctored and can be given any time from the online portal. Its also open book but due to shortage of time you cannot refer to guide all the time. Also mostly its the concepts that are tested rather then memorized/written stuff. I answered 85-90% questions in one go and marked approx 5-7 questions for reviewing at the end. Since i had time at the end so i gave more time to those questions and referred guide for understanding few points before answering those questions.

The exam is easy if you know the concepts of cloud security, types of services (IAAS,PAAS, SAAS), responsibilities of CP and organization and the cloud reference model properly.]]>
System Support to Cloud https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/128991/system-support-to-cloud Thu, 07 Sep 2017 22:03:23 +0000 Cloud Certifications Cloudal 128991@/discussions I have been in the lv2/lv3 system support area for about 6+ years now with abit of network and server knowledge. I have completed my MCSA windows 10 recently and I would like to further improve my skills in IT field and looking to go into the cloud.
I have a few uncertainty to which I should take (AWS or Azure) and if I'm taking AWS cert, should I start from SysOps as from i see from the web, it is more technical and does not require In-depth knowledge of at least one high-level programming language compare to architect and developer. But I also read that SysOps is the hardest of the 3 associate certs. I have a little of programming knowledge but not in-depth.
Or should I start elsewhere before I dive myself into Cloud cert?

Thanks thanks :)]]>

1) My company uses Azure so an education could prove useful
2) I'm not sure if this is the company that I will be in the long term and I know that AWS is big in cloud space, so I'm thinking about that.
3) I've been reading about CCSP and want to complete an ISC2 cert to validate my security knowledge and was not sure if this was the right path to take instead of preparing for CISSP in a few years.

What would you guys think is best?]]>
