Through presentations, demonstrations, and readings, this course will introduce security concepts for use with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Each week will focus on different aspects of security on AWS. In week one we will review some basic concepts such as “least privilege” and the “shared security model”. You will learn about AWS compliance programs, and look at securing AWS accounts using AWS IAM.
In the second week, we will focus on securing your infrastructure. We will look at network isolation and endpoint security. We will then look at detective controls such as Amazon Cloudtrail and AWS Cloudtrail as well as the AWS Security Hub, Amazon GuardDuty and AWS Config.
Week three will focus on data protection. We will look at encryption of data at rest, in motion, and best practices for how to store data within and between various AWS services.
In the final week of the course, we will look at protecting compute resources such as Amazon EC2 and AWS Lambda as well as managing secrets and finish off the course with a look at the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
Class forums will also allow you to ask questions and interact with AWS training instructors.
This course has been developed by AWS, and is delivered by AWS Solutions Architects.
