Hello Cloud Gurus!
I’ve been working really hard at updating this course. I’ve rolled out some major updates just now. I’ve re-organized the course so that Chapters 4 – 7 cover the specific domains in the exam blue print. I’ve recorded a whole new section, which is section 3 and this covers a lot of MAJOR topics in the exam (such as IAM policies, S3 bucket Policies, S3 ACL’s etc).
I’m on track to have this course fully finished by the 3rd of March as promised. Many more updates coming this week and next with lots more lectures. Mostly to section 7 which will be about how to respond to security events.
Please bear with me, but the course is almost updated to the new exam.
In terms of updates just pushed out, please watch all of section 3, it’s all new. As well as "Set Up An Alert If The Root User Logs In" in section 4. Also I have updated the SG vs NACL’s lecture (this was pointing at the wrong video).
Back to work! Keep being awesome cloud gurus!
Cool, because it shows which lessons were finished already and which are new ones 🙂
Exam on Friday so very useful update, thanks 🙂
Btw, anyone knows when AWS is planing to release results of these exams?
Thanks Ryan – my exam is this coming Monday, the new IAM content is much appreciated!
Exam on Wednesday thanks alot for updating the content
Exam tomorrow, appreciated the extra tutorials.
Thanks for the awesome effort. It is really very much appreciated.
Hi Ryan, Thanks for taking time to update this course. Please can you confirm it is now fully updated?
Took the exam last friday on the last day of the Beta. My impression:
The course is missing content about AWS Lambda and AWS Cognito service, the security related of these services.
Lots of questions on KMS, CloudTrail and CloudWatch.
It is a difficult exam.
PS: Definitely learn how to set up a warning of the event the root user logs in.
I would add that understanding all of the different ways to receive alerts with cloudtrail events, cloudwatch with metric filters, config rules, etc are important. It’s can be very confusing to understand which does what and so I think you probably have to play around with them to really understand. The exam will ask a number of questions about which to use and how to configure depending on the scenario.
Also for course content, a brief description of Athena vs using cloudwatch metric filters may help for at least one question.
