AWS Cloud Security

This course will be a whole week of learning how to design and deploy critical infrastructure in the cloud. You will learn the different building blocks of AWS and how security modelling principles apply across all cloud deployments. You will become skilled in how to identify security misconfigurations and how to exploit them.
You will also take the time to learn key technologies available to you within AWS to detect and identify vulnerabilities, potential compromise and identify bothersome attacks. This course will focus primarily on AWS and the standard technologies deployed in the cloud.
This course is designed to take you from “Zero to Hero”.
