For executives who are interested in cloud security, the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) certification is an accreditation. It was created by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), (ISC)2, and (ISC)2 in 2015 to meet future demand for cloud security experts.

These certifications are a proof of the professionals’ knowledge, skills and abilities to manage, control, enforce, and create regulatory frameworks.
The CCSP Common Body of Knowledge, (CBK), covers a wide range of topics which makes it applicable to all aspects of cloud security. Six domains are included in the CCSP exam. These are:

Domain 1: Cloud Concepts, Architecture and Design (17%)
Domain 2: Cloud Data Security (19%)
Domain 3: Cloud Platform Security and Infrastructure Security (17%)
Domain 4: Cloud Application Security (17%)
Domain 5: Cloud Security Operations (17%)
Domain 6: Legal, Compliance, Risk, and Compliance (13%)
This article will discuss CCSP Domain 5 Cloud Security Operations and what candidates can expect as they prepare for the exam.
Cloud Security Operations
The fifth domain of CCSP focuses upon security operations in a virtual environment. Cloud security specialists must have a good understanding of cloud operations. These include a wide range functions such as service design, development, deployment management, monitoring, auditing, and monitoring. All of these functions contribute to a secure cloud infrastructure.
The domain has 17% weightage. It covers the following topics:
Implement and create physical and logical infrastructure for cloud environments
Operate the Physical and Logical Infrastructure for Cloud Environments
Manage the Physical and Logical Infrastructure of Cloud Environments
Implement operational controls and standards
Support Digital Forensics
Communicate with relevant parties
Manage Security Operations
The video below will provide detailed information about the fifth domain of CCSP certification exam.

Below are descriptions of the numerous subsections of the fifth domain for the CCSP certification.
Cloud Environment: Implement and Build Logical and Physical Infrastructure
This domain covers the creation and implementation physical and logical infrastructures for cloud environments. Cloud security operations starts with a detailed discussion on data center planning. This includes both physical and logical layers as well as the technologies used.
It contains information on how to meet environmental concerns and needs in addition to physical requirements such as reliable and redundant cooling, electrical resources, and suitable protection against natural disasters or environmental challenges.
Cloud Environment: Physical and Logical Infrastructure
Domain 5 focuses on the operation of physical infrastructure and logical infrastructure in cloud environments. Cloud environments are largely virtualized, but they still have traditional physical environments and concerns.
The physical layer is made up of the virtualized environment’s servers, storage, and network components. From a network perspective, firewalls, routing, network-based intrusion prevention and detection systems, and all the concerns associated with a traditional data centre are all available. Depending on the environment, requirements and expectations, physical devices can be used in either a standalone or clustered configuration.
The same rules apply to a cloud environment’s physical environment as in a traditional data centre. These include patch management, versioning, access control and log collecting and preservation. Auditing requirements also apply. The physical environment requires
