DDLS is pleased to announce the addition of the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) certification training from (ISC)² which gives IT and information security leaders the opportunity to prove their understanding of cybersecurity and securing critical assets in the cloud.

The CCSP qualification was co-created by (ISC)² and the Cloud Security Alliance – stewards for information security and cloud computing security.

The qualification is a global credential that represents the “highest standard for cloud security expertise”, with (ISC)² the world’s “leading cybersecurity professional organisation, best known for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®) certification”.

Jon Lang, CEO of DDLS said, “DDLS is the only Australian Official Training Provider (OTP) of (ISC)² to be able to deliver CCSP training on a national scale”.

“As an (ISC)² OTP, courses are only taught by (ISC)² authorised instructors delivering the latest official course material. As the only training provider able to offer the three major cloud vendors with authorised Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft cloud training in Australia, DDLS is uniquely positioned to offer CCSP training.

“The DDLS training portfolio bridges the disciplines of cloud and cybersecurity and we are able to bring relevance and context to students’ CCSP learning.

“Once you earn your CCSP certification, you become an (ISC)² member and part of a professional global community of more than 140,000 certified cybersecurity professionals. You also gain access to a full suite of benefits and resources for continuing education and professional development, ensuring your expertise remains relevant throughout your career,” Lang concluded.

“Due to increasing demand for cloud security, the CCSP is the fastest growing (ISC)2 certification worldwide, and we’re pleased that it has been added to the DDLS portfolio of official (ISC)2 classes, which also includes the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP),” said Clayton Jones, managing director of Asia-Pacific, (ISC)2.

“The CCSP classes provide cloud security professionals with useful knowledge that will help them prove their abilities to build, implement and manage enterprise cloud security architectures.

“The CCSP certification is a “proven way to build their career and better secure critical assets in the cloud by strengthening their qualifications of advanced technical skills and knowledge to design, manage and secure data, applications and infrastructure in the cloud.”

Our AIICT brand expands portfolio with ten new courses to help address ICT skills shortage
The Australian Institute of ICT (AIICT) has introduced a new series of industry certified bootcamp programs and nationally-recognised qualifications to meet the surging demand for skilled ICT professionals in Australia.  The bootcamps support the Morrison Government’s recently announced Digital Skills Organisation (DSO) pilot, which recognises the importance of non-accredited training to support the development of skills of the future workforce. The bootcamp programs run for six months and comprise of several vendor-specific certifications. The courses include ‘Cloud Computing Certified Professional’, ‘Certified Microsoft Full Stack Developer’, ‘Certified Artificial Intelligence Professional’, ‘Growth Marketing Professional’ and ‘Certified Project Management Professional’. The decision to introduce the bootcamps follows the VET sector’s increasing move away from nationally recognised qualifications to vendor-specific, industry-certified training. According to the National Centre for Vocational Education Research, preference for accredited training courses has declined steadily in recent years, with employers increasingly less satisfied that these courses provide their employees with the most relevant and important skills for their business. This has led many organisations to preference non-accredited training provided by private technology vendors such as Microsoft and AWS.
