Description

This course is an introduction to AWS security. During this course, we will get started on the most important topics by covering the AWS Shared Responsibility model, the AWS Acceptable Use policy, and penetration testing rules. We will then explore each of the services in the security and identity category. Besides the most obvious of those, Identity and Access Management (IAM), we will also learn about AWS Directory Service, the brand new Inspector service (which is still in preview mode), the recently announced Web Application Firewall (WAF) and Microsoft AD, an Enterprise-level domain hosted in the cloud. Also, we will take a quick look at the most basic security best practices that we need to be aware of when working with AWS.

There are no big pre-requisites for this course, you just need to have general IT knowledge and some basic understanding of AWS. If you don't yet feel confident enough on AWS to tackle this, you should take a look at the AWS Fundamentals Learning Path prior to getting started.

After taking this course you should be able to identify who is responsible for what in the AWS cloud and describe all the services in the security and identity category.
