In this course, we’ll explore Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a platform. We will take the perspective of a new startup company spinning up infrastructure in AWS for the very first time. We’ll use a scenario-based approach, where you’ll don the persona of a security engineer on your first day at a new startup. This course will demonstrate ideas like secure-by-default and will examine services and patterns for locking down defaults using a combination of open source and platform-native tooling. Finally, attendees will walk away with a practical understanding of various controls, detections, and guardrails.
