AWS Security Best Practices (SBP)

 

Course Overview

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.
