ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 25 – Multiple employees of Jitscale, the international outsourcing partner for business-critical IT platforms, have obtained Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK), the first certification program in the industry for secure cloud computing. The certification recognizes professionals with a responsibility related to cloud computing who have demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the security threats and best practices for securing the cloud. Currently, additional Jitscale employees are working on obtaining the certificate. Based in the Netherlands, Jitscale serves customers in the United States from offices in Orlando, Fla.
The CCSK certification is an initiative of the Cloud Security Alliance. This is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is twofold: promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and provide education on the use of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing. The Cloud Security Alliance is led by a broad coalition of industry practitioners, corporations, associations and other key stakeholders.
“Growth is a key driver for our organization, both on a personal and on a business level”, says Anne Janse, security officer at Jitscale, who recently obtained the CCSK certification. “This means that we strive to grow as a company, but also as a group of individuals. Through education and training we seek to get the most out of our employees and by doing so further develop our services and optimize client satisfaction.”
Jitscale recognizes the importance of investing in educating and training its employees to guarantee the quality of its services. In this light, Jitscale also achieved the ISO 9001:2008 and 14001:2004 certificates, in September 2012. Furthermore, Jitscale has CISSP certified engineers (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) among its staff. The CISSP certification is a globally recognized performance standard that demonstrates the knowledge of an individual in the field of information security.
