The only official CCSP practice test product endorsed by (ISC)²
With over 1,000 practice questions, this book gives you the opportunity to test your level of understanding and gauge your readiness for the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) exam long before the big day. These questions cover 100% of the CCSP exam domains, and include answers with full explanations to help you understand the reasoning and approach for each. Logical organization by domain allows you to practice only the areas you need to bring you up to par, without wasting precious time on topics you’ve already mastered.

It also illustrates the relative importance of each domain, helping you plan your remaining study time so you can go into the exam fully confident in your knowledge.
When you’re ready, two practice exams allow you to simulate the exam day experience and apply your own test-taking strategies with domains given in proportion to the real thing. The online learning environment and practice exams are the perfect way to prepare, and make your progress easy to track.
This book is meant to help you pass these tests. It contains lists and descriptions of material usually tested, regardless of certifier or test.
I have the SSCP, CISSP, CCSP, CISM, CCSK, and Security+ certifications, and used to hold the SANS GSEC. I’ve taught prep courses for most of them, and am familiar with material that shows up over and over again, on all of them. I’m not an expert in any single area of IT or INFOSEC, nor am I even all that smart....but I am good at passing multiple-choice tests, and I am told that I’m good at conveying information. So I’m offering that knowledge to you.
I hope you find this book useful. If, after you take the test, you are unable to pass, and you think this book did not help you prepare for it, get in touch with me, and I’ll refund you half the cost of the book. I want you to feel like you received value for your money. I’ll even include a list of all those people who have asked for refunds, in each subsequent edition of this book.
This book is not a standalone product: you won’t be able to read the book and just pass the test. The book is designed for practitioners in the field: people who have trained and worked in INFOSEC for some time, who have the background and essentials to get the certifications. In addition to the book, you should be reviewing other sources (especially the sourcebook from the certifying body for the test you’re taking), including sample tests, primary sources, other books, classes, and online content. This book will show you the information you need to know, but you may have to do some additional research to get more comprehensive details about that information; I recommend Wikipedia and other online sources, because they are both exhaustive and -often- free.
I hope the book helps you pass your exam and get your certification. Please let me know what you think of it, whether you think it helped your study efforts or if you know some way it could be improved. Good luck!
Discover why privacy is a counterproductive, if not obsolete, concept in this startling new book
It's only a matter of time-- the modern notion of privacy is quickly evaporating because of technological advancement and social engagement. Whether we like it or not, all our actions and communications are going to be revealed for everyone to see. Exposed: How Revealing Your Data and Eliminating Privacy Increases Trust and Liberates Humanity takes a controversial and insightful look at the concept of privacy and persuasively argues that preparing for a post-private future is better than exacerbating the painful transition by attempting to delay the inevitable. Security expert and author Ben Malisow systematically dismantles common notions of privacy and explains how:
- Most arguments in favor of increased privacy are wrong
- Privacy in our personal lives leaves us more susceptible to being bullied or blackmailed
- Governmental and military privacy leads to an imbalance of power between citizen and state
- Military supremacy based on privacy is an obsolete concept
Perfect for anyone interested in the currently raging debates about governmental, institutional, corporate, and personal privacy, and the proper balance between the public and the private, Exposed also belongs on the shelves of security practitioners and policymakers everywhere.
