Knowledge in CompTIA Cloud+ is valuable for CSA CCSK

I would like share with CINers about the news for whom is preparing to take CCSK (CSA) v4 Exam. I have just passed the CCSK v4 Exam, I can inherit a lot of knowledge in CompTIA Cloud+ to prepare for CCSK exam, beside that CompTIA Server+ is also valuable reference.
Congrats on passing the CCSK, looks like a nice one. Truly, the info on Cloud+ and Server+ and other CompTIA exams help passing other exams for sure. I have taken practice exams for other certs without studying and have done moderately well just by knowing the material from CompTIA.

    Congrats! @NATUNA

    @Rick Butler I am one of those who got tunnel vision when it comes to certs.
    I am only aware of the CompTIA, Microsoft, CompTIA, ISC2 and a few other certs, particularly those listed in the CompTIA cert pathway.
    I didn't know about CCSK 'til now that it was mentioned.
    Thank Jarrel!
    You can see more in cloudsecurityalliance.org to looking for information about this certificate. This certificate is also considered the preparation step for CCSP of ISC2.

    I would recommend having a look at the IT Certification Roadmap, from CompTIA. Not just CompTIA, but you can look at the various roles and skill levels, which will help folks with "what do I need to work for, today?" type questions. /r

    Ah yes! I didn't notice CCSK is listed there.
     
    Remember, the point of the roadmap is to show which certifications are most important for a particular IT pathway, arranged by proficiency. Of course, it's not all inclusive nor determinant for every person. For example, the new CompTIA Data+ may or may not be important if you are a Cybersecurity Analyst. Depends on your job and what you do within a particular pathway.

    So, it's always a good thing to research. Plus, while it might be a cheese strategy, it's a great way to buff up a resume - snag a few certs based on working on their competitors. ;)
