Introducing Certified Cloud Security Engineer (C|CSE)

Introducing Certified Cloud Security Engineer (C|CSE)

EC-Council’s Certified Cloud Security Engineer (C|CSE) course is curated by cloud security professionals in association with renowned subject matter experts to deliver a mix of vendor-neutral and vendor-specific cloud security concepts. The vendor-neutral concepts focus on cloud security practices, technologies, frameworks, and principles. In contrast, the vendor-specific materials deliver the practical skills that are needed to configure specific platforms, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This offers candidates a well-balanced mix of theoretical and practical skills. In addition, advanced topics also cover modules on securing the cloud infrastructure by implementing regulations and standards to maintain security. EC-Council’s cloud security course is mapped to the real-time job roles and responsibilities of cloud security professionals and is ideal for beginners as well as experienced cybersecurity professionals.


Cloud computing has become mainstream and is growing in importance for all organizations. Most organizations use cloud infrastructure or services, whether software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), or infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and each of these deployment models has its own, complex security considerations. Cloud systems are at risk from exposure and are prime targets for attackers. There are three primary types of cloud environments—public clouds, private clouds, and hybrid clouds. These three environments offer different types of security configurations, based on the shared responsibility model.
