Train. Certify. Succeed!

Symantec just launched the new Symantec Certified Professional (SCP) program, which includes a Cloud Security training path and certification. 

Demonstrate your knowledge of cloud technologies and Symantec cloud security best practices and solutions.

850-001: Symantec Cloud Security 1.0

This exam is the first in the line of SCP exams and is based on the Symantec Cloud Security Essentials (SCSE) course. The SCP certification exam targets professionals who are tasked with architecting, recommending, or implementing a company’s data security strategy in the cloud.  The 3-day instructor-led SCSE course covers the 13 domains of cloud security outlined by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and demonstrates the implementation of a variety of Symantec products for secure operation in cloud environments.

The SCP in Cloud Security 1.0 certification exam covers core elements of risk assessment, cloud integration strategy and deployment options, as well as product-specific and non-product-specific cloud security solutions. By partnering with the CSA and requiring the Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) as a prerequisite to becoming an SCP in Cloud Security, IT professionals validate their understanding and technical competencies of cloud technologies and cloud security principles. Using real-world scenarios, the SCP exam in Cloud Security 1.0 will test candidates’ knowledge of how to evaluate risk assessment processes, integration strategies, cloud services, deployment models, implementation, basic administration, and security concerns—as well as applied solutions involved with securing cloud environments.
