The Certified Virtual Security Professional Program is the industry’s first professional training and certification program for virtualization security and compliance.
Virtualization infrastructure, and its corresponding virtual network security, continue to evolve. This presents a challenge to the IT department, as typically:
The CVSP curriculum encompasses emerging industry standards and guidelines, including requirements established by government agencies and virtualization platform vendors, as well as seasoned real world experience from Catbird consultants in the field.
The 1-day program includes one full day of coursework, supplemented by lab work and Q&A time. Completion of the one-day course gives trainees introductory, actionable information. Students graduate with an advanced understanding of the myriad of security and compliance issues surrounding virtualization security with hands-on training on avoidance and mitigation.
The CVSP program covers advanced security skills and technologies required to extend existing network security polices into the virtual infrastructure. Course topics include:
Students are hosted in a state-of-the-art lab to give extensive hands-on training, allowing them to quickly gain confidence and capability with the architecture and applications.
The prerequisite for a CVSP certification is at least 3 years of direct experience building and managing network security within a corporate environment. Alternatively, in-depth knowledge of virtual infrastructure with a goal of understanding the security implications would also qualify. Catbird recommends that each CVSP candidate have achieved VCP certification as a foundation for this course. Completion of VCP training or equivelant is sufficient..
At the end of their training, candidates must pass a multiple choice exam to obtain certification. Once the CVSP exam has been satisfactorily completed, the candidate will receive a certification packet, including the CVSP certificate. CVSP graduates will be fully-trained in guiding their customers’ or their own virtualization security strategies.
The CVSP course is delivered by authorized training centers. Please contact for the training center nearest you.
The course is an exciting and challenging opportunity to discover, understand and control various aspects of virtual security. It is must-have training for IT staff in the burgeoning field of virtualization security who wish to remain on the cutting edge of their security career.
