This course features an in-depth look at the six domains that largely make up the (ISC)² CCSP certification exam:

  • Cloud Concepts, Architecture and Design
  • Cloud Data Security
  • Cloud Platform and Infrastructure Security
  • Cloud Application Security
  • Cloud Security Operations
  • Legal, Risk, and Compliance

While there aren’t any formal prerequisites to take the (ISC)² CCSP training course itself, the certification exam does require a minimum of five years cumulative paid work experience in IT, including three years of information security experience and at least one year in one or more of the six CCSP domains.

It’s a 4-day bootcamp training course.

Individuals who hold the PMP certification will earn 32 PDUs through the training course.

You’ll get a course book, practice (ISC)² CCSP exam questions, and an exam voucher. Of course, your tuition also includes priceless group activities, as well as discussions and bagels.

Our (ISC)² CCSP training course is designed for IT and information security leaders who are responsible for applying security practices to cloud-based systems. Security engineers, architects, administrators, managers, and consultants can all benefit form this course. That said, it’s a good course for anyone interested in learning more about the six domains or sitting for the (ISC)² CCSP certification exam.

The CCSP exam uses Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) for all English exams. CCSP exams in all other languages are administered as linear, fixed-format exams.

Length of exam: 3 hours
Number of questions: 125 multiple choice
Passing grade: 700 or higher

As an (ISC)² member or associate, you must earn CPEs to actively maintain your security administration certification. All CPE activities must be completed or earned during the three years of each certification cycle and no later than the certification expiration date (the end of your certification cycle).

At the end of the three-year certification cycle, when both required CPE credits and Annual Maintenance Fee (AMF) payment requirements are met, your membership will renew to a new three-year certification cycle.

Why Beyond20

How We Teach

People learn differently, so we use a variety of methods to teach concepts throughout the course. In addition to exam preparation and practice quizzes, you'll engage in round-table discussions, group exercises, and games designed to give practical context to the concepts. We take this approach not only because it's more interesting and fun than simply memorizing vocabulary, but because it works.

All of our cybersecurity instructors are experienced practitioners with real world security expertise. (Real experience, too. Like, Active DoD Secret Clearance experience.)

We're a US-based organization with offices in DC, Phoenix, and San Diego.

Industry-Leading Course Materials

All of our courseware is reviewed multiple times a year to ensure it's up to date, in line with best practice standards, and effective! We incorporate feedback from students to constantly improve our course books, in-class activities, and (sorry) homework. The goal is to provide you with the tools to not only get you through class and pass the exam, but also to have a reliable reference when you get back to the office.

We don't just teach to the exam (though we certainly do that), we also give you practical and personalized tools you can take back to work.

We're a Registered Education Provider with PMI, so if you're PMP Certified, the course will earn you PDUs!
