AMA11 - AWS Security Best Practices

Course description

Currently, the average cost of a security breach can be upwards of $4 million. AWS Security Best Practices
provides an overview of some of the industry best practices for using AWS security and control types. This
course helps you understand your responsibilities while providing valuable guidelines for how to keep your
workload safe and secure. You will learn how to secure your network infrastructure using sound design
options. You will also learn how you can harden your compute resources and manage them securely.
Finally, by understanding AWS monitoring and alerting, you can detect and alert on suspicious events to
help you quickly begin the response process in the event of a potential compromise.


This course includes presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs.
