Go for some professional education. There are plenty of vendors such as ISACA, cloud security allowance and ISC2 offer professional certifications such as CCSP and CCSK etc. Depends on your background, you can have enough knowledge with these to enter into cloud security profession.

    For Cloud Security skills you can go for CISCO (CCNA Cloud-https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/training-events/training-certifications/certifications/associate/ccna-cloud.html) or DevOps, which is a method of software development that takes the entire software lifecycle into account, from planning to use and maintenance. It is also a good framework in the cloud computing industry. However you did not reveal your qualifications, your current job etc.
