Ramp-Up Learning Guide available for AWS Cloud Security, Governance, and Compliance

Cloud security is the top priority for AWS and for our customers around the world. It’s important that professionals have a way to keep up with this dynamically evolving area of cloud computing. Often, customers seek AWS guidance on cloud-specific security, governance, and compliance best practices, including skills upgrade plans. To address this need, AWS recently released the AWS Ramp-Up Learning Guide for AWS Cloud Security, Governance, and Compliance
(PDF). AWS experts curated this learning plan to teach in-demand cloud skills and real-world knowledge that you can rely on to keep up with cloud security, governance, and compliance developments and grow your career.

The guide starts with AWS Cloud fundamentals and progresses all the way through the AWS Certified Security Specialty certification. You can use the guide to find answers to questions such as, What resources are available? How do I earn AWS credentials? What order should I consume learning resources and training? Where do I find information on AWS events, blogs, and user groups to enhance my learning?

The list of resources includes free digital training offerings, classroom courses, videos, whitepapers, certifications, and other materials. The AWS Ramp-Up Guide is an extension to the AWS Training and Certification security learning path.
