I need to understand how to effectively secure cloud-based infrastructure and be able to respond to questions regarding my company’s implementation.
Cloud computing has evolved from a bleeding-edge technology to the dominant platform for building and deploying new applications and services. While there are plenty of hand-wringing FUD sessions at industry conferences, there are few opportunities to learn the practical, hands-on skills for security IaaS and PaaS deployments. Many of your security skills still apply in the cloud, but you need to leverage them in new ways.
James Arlen leads a hands-on exploration of techniques for protecting the cloud, with extensive labs in Amazon Web Services. The first day focuses on root account security, virtual networking security, IAM, and logging/monitoring; the second day covers leveraging PaaS services, using immutable infrastructure, and automating security controls.
If you’re responsible for designing or architecting security for infrastructure- and/or platform-as-a-service deployments, if your organization is moving into cloud computing and you need the skills to defend it, or if you’re interested in learning how to secure Amazon Web Services and implement security automation for the cloud, this tutorial is for you.
