Course description

AWS: Getting Started with Cloud Security

Data security is on the forefront of everyone’s mind these days, with data breaches, denial of service attacks, ransomware and malware being common news stories.

In this course two of Amazon Web Services’ Solutions Architects will provide you with a foundational understanding of cloud security, compliance and the AWS shared responsibility model. They will then discuss more technical content by looking at various security controls such as identity and access management services, directory services, network isolation and connectivity options, auditing, monitoring, encryption and managing secrets.

This course will cover a number of AWS services, such as Amazon VPC, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon GuardDuty, AWS Security Hub, Amazon S3, Amazon EBS, Amazon EC2, and AWS Secrets Manager, among others.

Several demonstrations are provided throughout the course to provide a practical example of the concepts that have been discussed. Class discussions will provide an opportunity for you to interact with fellow students as well as AWS training staff.
