Cloud Security Alliance Debuts The Knowledge Center
SANTA CLARA, CA — The Cloud Security Alliance has announced the launch of the CSA Knowledge Center. 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 Plus, Cloud Governance and Compliance, and Software Defined Perimeter, while simultaneously offering both individuals and enterprises flexibility and the ability to meet tight budgets while enhancing their skills.
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 course on cloud security.
“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 Jim Reavis, CEO of the Cloud Security Alliance. “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.
