LP Introduction: AWS Security, Identity & Compliance
AWS Security, Identity & Compliance Introduction

This brief course introduces the AWS Security, Identity & Compliance learning path, which covers all of the content within the Cloud Academy library that's relates to the services within the 'Security, Identity & Compliance' category of the AWS Management Console



AWS has developed a number of security, identity, and compliance services and management tools to help you protect both your data and your environment from unwanted exposures, vulnerabilities, and threats. But largely, it's down to us as customers of AWS to ensure these AWS security services are implemented effectively. Security's still the number one priority for both cloud vendors and customers. Its concepts and principles must be embedded into your deployments every step of the way, from conceptual design, through development, all the way through to production, and then on to daily operational support. 

This learning path contains all of our content within our library that relates to the services listed within the AWS Security, Identity, and Compliance category of the AWS Management Console. It contains our on-demand courses and hands-on labs, allowing you to develop your skills and knowledge in this specific area.
