The GWDC is sponsoring an intensive 3-day virtual review course for the Certificate of Cloud Auditing Knowledge (CCAK™). The dates of the CCAK review course are three consecutive Saturdays: May 6, 13, and 20, 2023 from 8:30 am to 5:00 PM.
The CCAK course is designed to cover the following five core areas of focus: Cloud governance, Cloud compliance, Cloud auditing, Cloud assurance, and CSA tools. The course will provide knowledge on cloud security assessment methods and techniques, and will assist students in updating their expertise in cloud and hybrid security auditing. CCAK is a joint project by Cloud Security Alliance® and ISACA®. The CCAK is the first credential available for industry professionals to demonstrate their expertise in the essential principles of auditing cloud computing systems. The CCAK credential and training program fills the gap in the market for technical education for cloud IT auditing.
Please take a moment to hear from the instructor, Sushila Nair, about the benefits of the CCAK certification and how the review course will help you prepare for the CCAK exam.
This event is intended for anyone sitting for the CCAK Exam. Students are expected to have prepared for the exam prior to attending the course.
