Description

Overview

Maintaining governance and compliance within the cloud is just as important as maintaining it on-premise. Almost all organizations are required to meet specific regulations and specifications from both an internal and external perspective, which affect their IT solutions which must be monitored and implemented effectively. 

This compliance may include certification and regulations such as ISO, HIPPA or PCI DSS which often involve controls against security and data protection.

AWS provides a number of tools and services to help you implement, govern and control your environment to ensure you are able to confidently apply the relevant deployments, policies and procedures to adhere to any requirements needed.  

This AWS Governance & Compliance learning path has been designed to give you an understanding and an overview of Cloud governance and compliance within AWS and the Cloud. It will look at governance, risk and compliance allowing you to understand what those three elements are defined as, before looking deeper into the different AWS services and how these can be utilized to help you maintain your AWS infrastructure based on those elements.
