Transcript

The section on AWS databases is now complete, and we have covered the key database architectures with a lot of content relating to their main features. But before we move on to the last section, I want to highlight again the areas we focused on, so you can see what you've now achieved. In the last section, we look at the topic of security. Now, security always comes up within certifications due to its importance across all deployments. As you can see, the main domain covered here is domain three, design secure applications and architectures, which is of course no surprise. We look at a variety of security services covering access control, application security, compliance, monitoring, logging, and encryption. So it's so much to cover. Let's begin.
