Implement Amazon Web Services (AWS) securely. This course is designed for the system administrator who needs to configure AWS Identity and Access Management for users and groups and prepare for account audits.
- Hi, I'm Sharif Nijim, and I'd like to welcome you to this course on Enterprise Security and Amazon Web Services. Amazon Web Services, or AWS, is the global leader in cloud computing. It's an exciting time to be an IT professional. We're in the midst of one of the biggest transformations in IT history. Startups are running in the Cloud from the get go, while established companies are migrating from running their own data centers to operating their infrastructure in the cloud. When preparing to use any cloud service, security is a top concern.
This course is designed to give you an appreciation of the security tools available within AWS. We'll start off by exploring the shared responsibility model, so you can understand where your responsibilities began and what AWS is accountable for. We'll look at how to effectively implement separation of duties. We'll delve into Identity & Access Management, giving you a thorough understanding for IAM concepts, including users, groups, roles and policies. Finally, we will explore the tools and approaches to help you prepare for the inevitable IT audit.
Let's get started.
