CCSP Exam

The CCSP exam is a multiple-choice questions exam with 125 questions and the duration of the exam is 3 hours. 

One might assume that it is easy to finish the 125 multiple choice questions in 180 minutes duration of the CCSP exam. However, the exam is one of the difficult exams offered by (ISC)2. The passing score of the exam is at least 700 out of 1000. This means you need to get at least 88 questions right to clear the exam. 

(ISC)² has an obligation to its membership to maintain the relevancy of its credentials. These enhancements are the result of a detailed, methodical process that (ISC)² follows to routinely update its credential exams. This ensures that the examinations and subsequent continuing professional education requirements encompass the topic areas relevant to the roles and responsibilities of today's cloud security professionals. 

The content of the CCSP has been refreshed to reflect the most pertinent issues that cloud security professionals currently face, along with the best practices for mitigating those issues. As a result of the content refresh, this is the new order of domain weightage:  

  • Domain 1: Cloud Concepts, Architecture, and Design - 17% 
  • Domain 2: Cloud Data Security - 19% 
  • Domain 3: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure Security - 17% 
  • Domain 4: Cloud Application Security - 17% 
  • Domain 5: Cloud Security Operations - 17% 
  • Domain 6: Legal, Risk, and Compliance - 13%  

Domains change because it reflects a change in knowledge, skills, and abilities, as indicated by experts through the Job Task Analysis process. 

 The changes will begin on August 1, 2022. 


No, the exam time will remain unchanged at 3 hours. The number of items on the exam remains 100 operational items with 25 pretest items. 

 The refreshed CCSP exam will be available in English and Japanese. 

 (ISC)² exams are experience-based that include experience-based questions that cannot be learned by studying alone. If you already have experience in the domains covered in CCSP and believe that you have sufficiently studied those domains, you should feel confident that you are qualified to take the new exam and pass it. (ISC)² cannot guarantee you will pass the exam. 

 No. For the certified cloud security professional (CCSP) certification, a candidate is required to have a minimum of five years cumulative work experience in one or more of the six domains of the CCSP CBK (Common Book of Knowledge). 

 The updated Official (ISC)² CCSP Training Course will be available on August 1, 2022. 

CCSP Exam Prep

Generally, it takes about 120 days to prepare for the CCSP examination, which you will get to prepare for the exam once you have made the payment for the CCSP exam. For 40 to 60 hours of certified cloud security professional certification preparation, you can commit 2 hours every day to exam preparations. You can also acquire training from a training partner of (ISC)2 to have a seamless learning journey.  

You can refer to the following books to prepare: 

  • The Official (ISC)² Guide to the CCSP CBK by Adam Gordon (illustrated examples, clear diagrams, best practices, and real-life scenarios on cloud security)
