Overview/Description

In this 8-video course, you will examine foundational topics for securing Amazon Web Services (AWS), such as the Shared Responsibility Model, security basics like the CIA Triad (confidentiality, integrity, and availability), the Parkerian Hexad, and security control categories and types, core AWS services and related threats, and compliance. Begin with a look at the AWS Shared Responsibility Model, which is between Amazon and client. The next tutorial is about understanding the CIA Triad and the Parkerian hexad, the main security services that you will provide for your data. This leads to a closer look at the types and categories of control, and then reviewing the core AWS services to ensure a proper understanding of various services and offerings. You will then survey some of the common threats to AWS products and service offerings, starting with access control breaches. The final tutorial focuses on AWS compliance services. In the closing exercise, learners describe the Shared Responsibility Model, security services and controls, core AWS services and threats, and AWS compliance.
