Now Available: New AWS Training Curriculum on Security

It’s probably no surprise that information security is one of today’s most sought after IT specialties. We also understand how deeply important it is to you, our APN Partners, and your customers. So today we’re launching a new AWS Training curriculum focused on security.

The curriculum’s two new classes are designed to help you and your customers meet cloud security objectives under the AWS Shared Responsibility Model, including guidance on how to create more secure AWS architectures and solutions and address key compliance requirements.

Here’s a closer look at what’s new:

  • AWS Security Fundamentals: This free 3-hour online class is designed to introduce fundamental cloud computing and AWS security concepts, including AWS access control and management, governance, logging, and encryption methods. The class, aimed primarily at security professionals with little or no working knowledge of AWS, also covers security-related compliance protocols, risk management strategies, and procedures for auditing AWS security infrastructure.
  • Security Operations on AWS: A 3-day technical deep dive on how to stay secure and compliant in the AWS cloud. This classroom-based course covers security features of key AWS services and AWS best practices for securing data and systems. You’ll learn about regulatory compliance standards and use cases for running regulated workloads on AWS. Hands-on practice with automation and monitoring tools will help you take your security operations to the next level.

Completing the new training should prove valuable to APN Consulting and Technology Partners in a number of ways. It’s evidence of your strong commitment to developing your knowledge of AWS security concepts, and can help you as you develop your deep expertise in designing secure and compliant solutions on AWS.
