Almost half of UK infosec workers say cloud-based services are a security concern. To ensure that cloud security professionals have the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to work with cloud infrastructures, (ISC)²® established EMEA training seminars for its new CCSP certification with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
Statistics from the 2015 Global Information Security Workforce Study reveal how a growing skills gap in cloud computing is affecting cloud adoption and the advancing security concern around cloud.
Dr Adrian Davis, CISSP, managing director for EMEA, (ISC)² states, “It's no secret that cloud adoption in Europe has been growing substantially in recent years and continues to rise. As cloud becomes part of the IT infrastructure, it's becoming more important to ensure that there are qualified IT professionals with relevant skills to manage and implement cloud securely. New UK-based statistics reveal that security professionals are still concerned about the management of cloud, especially as threats rapidly develop and increase in number. Together with CSA, we've developed this certification to provide IT professionals with advanced knowledge to help businesses ensure that security is a key component of cloud adoption.”
