Best Course for the CCSK

First of all, let me say that I have some IT certifications in my background prior to this one but to be honest I can say, am still “new” to the Cloud Security world even if I had some hands-on experience with cloud deployments and operations tasks. So I am not an expert in cloud security and going for the CCSK certification seemed bit intimidating and didn’t know where to start and didn’t to invest much financially. I started looking into what’s available as resources apart the “big” guide of CSA. I was looking for a “DIY” style help.  After finding this one, it definitely helps me put everything on a fast track and save me lot of time Googling. It took me one week to go through everything as I took my time to delve into each chapter and become comfortable with each area of cloud security… best part is I'm actually learning lot and enjoying it. Good luck to everyone!

Hi, my name is Rachid and I make people think about Cloud and Security.

Within my short two decades of run in IT and Security fields, I had the pleasure to meet and work with some distinguish minds. I am also known for someone who love changes and always looking for challenges… in the last 10 years I have change continents at least twice, change my job at least four times and completely redesigned my professional career…

It has been a long journey, but I had the opportunity to learn lot and work in different environments from Academic, Industrial, Services, Finance to Healthcare environments etc.

Now it’s time for me to give back and share what I have learned during my work. Looking back, I can now say this stage is the most valuable during all my career, where I can really see my work help someone else.

This course and my other three books testifies by themselves as one of my accomplishments that I was thinking about, for a long term… but never had the time to start or finish.

With your help and many of your encouragements, it is now live and a reality - Thank you!

Enjoy your course
