CCZT Credly Badge
  • CSA CCZT Certificate of Competency in Zero Trust


    Certificate of Competence in Zero Trust is the industry’s first authoritative, vendor-neutral Zero Trust credential that provides the knowledge needed to understand the core concepts of Zero Trust.

    The Zero Trust model, which operates on the principle of 'never trust, always verify', is quickly rising as the favored strategy to secure the cloud. Recognizing that organizations are challenged to find skilled staff critical to the development and implementation of a Zero Trust philosophy, CSA created the Certificate of Competence in Zero Trust (CCZT) to provide mainstream best practices. Launched in 2023, the CCZT is based on the key concepts outlined in CSA's Zero Trust Training (ZTT).

    The certificate provides an in-depth understanding of Zero Trust architecture, its components, and its functioning. Earning the CCZT is critical for security professionals seeking to advance their careers and for organizations who must maintain strong security postures. With Zero Trust established as the future of information security, a Zero Trust based approach will inevitably become a requirement for organizations and a required skill for professionals.

    The CCZT includes foundational Zero Trust components released by CISA and NIST, innovative work in the Software Defined Perimeter by CSA Research, and guidance from renowned Zero Trust experts such as John Kindervag, Founder of the Zero Trust philosophy. This positions CSA as the authoritative source to deliver the industry’s first benchmark for measuring Zero Trust skill sets.

    The Certificate of Competence in Zero Trust consists of the following topics:

    • Introduction to Zero Trust Architecture 
    • Introduction to Software-Defined Perimeter
    • ZT Planning
