    Default Passed CCSKv4

    Today I passed the CCSKv4 exam. This was my second time taking it as I missed the first one by maybe 2 questions. My last position as a Senior systems security engineer had me dealing with cloud on a normal basis. This certification allowed me to understand it better. If you are interested in taking the test it is online, open book, and you get two exams for the price of one. 60 questions in 90 minutes with 3 study materials: CCSKv4 main book, ENISA book, and the Cloud controls matrix (CCM). Most of the questions were found in the main book. If you understand the material you can probably get this test within a month. It took me a month in a half because i wanted to read the whole book.

    What's next? I have another dance with CISSP this year, however my company is heavily pushing SPLUNK. Decisions, Decisions.

    Congratulations - can be a tricky exam as your first attempt confirms. I like the vendor neutral approach of the CSA\CCSK.

    I head up a cloud team for a cybersecurity consultancy. It primarily gave me stronger knowledge of the standards (NIST, CSA, ENISA, etc.) as they relate to cloud to be able to advise clients of best industry practice and also the certification itself added weight to my ability to discuss these and other related topics. Prior to this I had standard InfoSec certifications (CISM, CITP, CIPM, etc.) which enabled me to obtain the position in the first place but the CCSK\CCSP exams give me further credibility for this specific role.
