Last week (first week of February 2023), I took and passed the ISC2 CCSP exam (Certified Cloud Security Professional)

As usual, I watched all relevant videos I could find on and used to the included practice exam until I consistently got a (very) high score. Additionally, I read thumbed through the All-In-One series book on the CCSP exam.

The actual exam was quite hard and I was surprised to learn I passed. Pleasantly surprised, obviously. The provisional result was printed out at the test center as is usual with ISC2 exams.

There is a reddit sub-thread where a lot of test-takers complain about this exam. Usually I don’t pay those people too much attention since I passed all these exams at first try so far (10-ish exams so far) but I have to admit, some questions left me troubled and confused. The bewildering questions did not seem relevant to the exam topic at all.

If somebody came here hoping for some useful advice on this exam, I’m sorry, I can’t give you any. I can’t give you any meaningful advice on what else to study apart from the above. Obviously, learn the basics by heart (shared responsibility model, threat models, data life cycle, SLDC, risk mitigations etc.) but beyond that, I am not sure what to recommend.

If you are taking the exam soon: don’t panic, stay concentrated, give it your best shot and best of luck!
