Fast-forward your cloud auditing skills for today's environments 

AWS customers in highly regulated industries such as financial services and healthcare tend to undergo frequent security audits. To help make these audits more productive, AWS has released the AWS Auditor Learning Path. This set of online and in-person classes provides foundational and advanced education about implementing security in the AWS Cloud and using AWS tools to gather the information necessary to audit an AWS environment. The Learning Path also includes a set of self-paced labs to help you gain hands-on experience for auditing your use of AWS services.

After completing the AWS Auditor Learning Path, you should have an understanding of how your IT department consumes AWS services and be able to more effectively engage with your compliance and security teams. The Learning Path is specifically designed for:

  • Auditing executives
  • Field auditors
  • Specialized internal auditors
