One thing I hear a lot from AWS newbies is that security in AWS can be a little overwhelming. There are so many concepts and services to learn. I totally agree! So in this video, I’m joined by Ashish from @CloudSecurityPodcast to help you cut through the noise, focusing on the important things you need to know as you get started.
Using a sample web application as a use case, he’ll walk you through the important security points for:
• Your AWS account (CloudTrail, IAM users with MFA, IAM roles)
• Network (Direct Connect, VPN, regions and availability zones)
• Storage (S3, EBS encryption and Macie)
• Compute (EC2, security groups, key pairs, instance profiles and public/private IPs)
• Database (RDS)
