Are you looking for AWS Security Training? Do you want to learn from an experienced trainer who makes complex concepts simple and easy to understand? Do you need to prepare for the AWS Security Specialty exam?

I am an experienced AWS Instructor, and have a number of top-rated courses on Udemy. Most lectures in this course are 5 - 15 minutes long. A few deeper topics are slightly longer.

Cloud Computing is everywhere. Traditional standalone datacenters are slowly becoming a thing of the past. More organizations are either migrating to the AWS cloud, or are configuring hybrid computing models that use on-premises resources and cloud resources. In order to stay relevant you must understand AWS. This course builds off my "AWS Solutions Architect Associate with Practice Test" videos, and gives you a deeper understanding of AWS Security.

Topics covered include:

  • Security basics and the shared responsibility model

  • IAM policies and Multi-Factor authentication

  • Securing S3 with ACLs, bucket policies, IAM, encryption, and pre-signed URLs

  • Identity federations, Security Token Service, Cross-Account Access, and Cognito

  • Monitoring, Logging, and Auditing with CloudTrail, CloudWatch, AWS Inspector, and Trusted Advisor

  • Key Management with KMS, external keys, KMS grants and more

  • VPC Security and Monitoring with public and private subnets, NACLs, Security Groups, Flow Logs, and SSL

  • AWS WAF, AWS Shield, Athena, Macie, GuardDuty, Artifact, and Session Manager

  • Security incident response, DDoS, and Penetration testing

What you will learn

  • Pass the AWS Certified Advanced Security - Specialty Exam
  • Learn how to manage AWS Security with many hands-on lab demos
  • Use practice tests to refine your knowledge and identify weak spots
