Playing a little catchup

A lot has been going on over the last 6 months or so. One of the primary things is that I’ll be doing is taking the ISC(2) Certified Cloud Security Professional exam on 4 NOV.

What does the CCSP cover you might ask?

Domain 1 covers architecture, concepts, and design. Domain 1 also includes cloud computing concepts which covers broad network access, on-demand services, resource pooling, rapid elasticity, multi-tenancy and more. It also includes cloud service models, IaaS, storage types, volume storage, object storage, PaaS, storage types and more.

The cloud service deployment model covers public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, community cloud, management plane, and virtualization.

The things that are covered in the rest of Domain 1 are:
Security aspects of virtualization – Type 1 and Type 2 hypervisors.
Principles of secure cloud computing – covering roles and responsibilities, design principles and Identity and Access Management (IAM).

Design requirements – covering requirements analysis, functional requirements, inventory, valuation and more. Cloud model boundaries were also covered as well as the cloud service models, IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. Protecting sensitive information portion covered hardening, encryption, layer defense, common threats, secure data life cycles and more. And finally, the Threat Modeling portion of Domain 1 includes STRIDE, DREAD, the OWASP Top 10 security threats and the CSA Top 9 risks.

I’ll outline Domain 2 tomorrow along with some other important details.

Ive also been able to make back to CrossFit on a regular basis. Ive also been able to get out on the water a little more often and once I pass this exam in November I’ll take a couple months off and then at the beginning of the year go ALL IN on Heath Adams Practical Network Penetration Testing certification. After that I will take a nice long break from taking certification exams.

Today as a break from studying I took a nice long walk and I found this cool writing spider along the way.

Nice easy two hour stroll through the eastern pinelands
Our old friend the writing spider

And, it’s kind of fitting that I haven’t posted any sort of lifting videos in…forever, and when I finally get back to training that I end up posting a lifetime PR for my deadlift at 517#. Easy day.

lifting is the source

Until next time…
