This course details the services in AWS that can be used to secure applications and the resources on which the applications run. These services include AWS Secrets Manager, AWS WAF, and Amazon Inspector. Additionally, the course provides an overview of overall security in AWS, specifically the steps and techniques to secure accounts in AWS. The overall security posture is emphasized as essential rather than simply focusing on application security. The course concludes with a checklist that can be used to strengthen overall security. The course has five hands-on labs that focus on Secrets Manager, WAF, and Amazon Inspector — first individually, and then as a group for application security.
