Cloud Security Alliance Debuts the Knowledge Center, a Comprehensive E-Learning Platform

Offers individuals, enterprises high-quality flexible training to
complement and enhance knowledge, schedules and budgets

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#cloudlt;/agt;–RSA CONFERENCE 2019 – The Cloud
Security Alliance
(CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated
to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a
secure cloud computing environment, today announced the launch of the
CSA Knowledge
. Created by the CSA utilizing CSA research, the Knowledge
Center is the only centralized place to gain training on unique,
vendor-neutral backed research courses such as the Certificate of Cloud
Security Knowledge (CCSK), CCSK Plus, Cloud Governance and Compliance
(CGC) and Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) (coming soon) while
simultaneously offering both individuals and enterprises flexibility and
the ability to meet tight budgets while enhancing their skills – all via
a simplified learning platform.

The Knowledge Center is ideal for individuals wanting a flexible
learning environment in order to gain added credibility and knowledge of
cloud security but who lack sufficient resources to do so either due to
time or budget constraints. Organizations, meanwhile, face a different
set of challenges with dispersed teams, priorities, and
responsibilities. They want to take proactive measures to ensure that
their teams are fully equipped and confident to safely and securely
navigate any moves to a cloud platform or new technology. For them, CSA
e-learning extends the training budget while certifying their employees
in an industry-backed, cloud security course.

“As new technologies emerge that have an impact and place in cloud
computing environment, the skills, and knowledge necessary to keep
organizations secure grows. It’s not surprising then that individuals
need more than a one-time certificate. However, in-person and
virtual-led trainings can be difficult to attend due to time out of the
office and inconvenient locations,” said CSA CEO Jim Reavis. “We see the
CSA Knowledge Center as filling a need within the industry and becoming
the go-to-platform when it comes to delving deeper into cloud computing
concepts and the role new technologies play.”

Among its benefits to enterprises and individuals, alike, are:

  • Stretched training budgets. Since the e-learning platform is less
    expensive, it stretches the training budgets of individuals and
    organizations farther.
  • Flexibility. The platform gives individuals the ability to work around
    scheduled events, projects, and deadlines and go through content at
    their own pace.
  • Credibility. The research that goes into the course is vendor-neutral
    and created by CSA’s network of professionals and subject-matter
    experts. The course material is straight from the source, and verified
    by CSA.
  • Usability. An online, mobile, sleek platform makes taking the course a
    cleaner more pleasant experience.
