Learning Kubernetes (k8s) is valuable due to its powerful role in the contemporary landscape of technology and software development. As a leading platform for container orchestration, Kubernetes simplifies the deployment, scaling, and management of applications across distributed networks. By leveraging Kubernetes, businesses and developers can manage complex application infrastructures with greater efficiency and reliability, leading to improved productivity and cost savings. Additionally, as cloud-native applications and microservices continue to rise in prevalence, skills in Kubernetes are becoming increasingly sought-after in the job market. As such, learning Kubernetes not only equips you with the ability to build resilient systems but also enhances your professional value in the technology industry.

Kubernetes security is a critical aspect of modern cloud infrastructure, and understanding it can have a significant impact on your organization's resilience against potential cyber threats. Headlines already have clearly stated that absent or sloppy K8S security hygïene can harm you companies services and reputation.

Our CKS course enables you too:

a. Deepen Knowledge of Kubernetes Security: The CKS course provides comprehensive knowledge on securing Kubernetes clusters. This includes cluster setup and hardening, system hardening, minimizing microservice vulnerabilities, supply chain security, monitoring and logging, and security incident response.

b. Increase Marketability: As Kubernetes gains prevalence in the industry, certified specialists, especially in security, are in high demand. Having a CKS certification can give you a competitive edge in the job market and open up new career opportunities.

c. Improve Practical Skills: The CKS certification emphasizes hands-on skills in Kubernetes security. By attending our CKS course, you get the opportunity to practice these skills in a guided environment accompanied by a skilled trainer that has years of hands-on experience with K8S and security.

d. Promote Best Security Practices: With cyber threats becoming more sophisticated, there's an industry-wide push towards more robust security practices. Knowledge from a CKS course equips you to contribute to this initiative by implementing and advocating for strong security measures within your organization.

What you will learn:

  • Cluster Setup: Learning to configure and verify the right settings for a secure Kubernetes cluster setup. This involves understanding the various components and their roles, and how to protect those components from threats.
  • Cluster Hardening: Understanding and applying methods to harden your Kubernetes clusters, including the principles and application of Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), Pod Security Policies, and network policies.
  • System Hardening: Learning how to secure the underlying systems running your Kubernetes workloads. This includes securing the Kubernetes API Server and other control plane components, worker nodes, and network configurations.
  • Minimize Microservice Vulnerabilities: Understanding how to minimize the potential attack surface for your applications running on Kubernetes. This includes ensuring that your containerized applications follow security best practices, and the principle of least privilege is maintained.
  • Supply Chain Security: Grasping how to ensure the integrity and security of your application's supply chain, including container images, their sources, and ensuring their safe deployment.
  • Monitoring, Logging, and Runtime Security: Learning how to implement security monitoring and logging to detect malicious activity within your Kubernetes environment. This includes understanding what to monitor, how to interpret logs, and what tools are available for runtime security.
  • Incident Response and Forensics: Learning how to respond to security incidents in a Kubernetes environment and conduct forensic analysis to determine the cause of the incident and how to prevent similar incidents in the future.
