AWS Security

The public cloud is very secure, but even the most impregnable fortress can be infiltrated. An unseen backdoor, an unwatched gate, a secret passage can lead to a data breach. Those brave enough to follow the Security Path will learn to defend their clouds through secure protocols, data encryption, specialized data classifications and best practices, including how to navigate between cost, security, and complexity.

Not sure where to start? We’ll guide you through the exact skills you need to gain to progress from novice to guru across a variety of cloud specialties.

These paths are flexible, so you can hop in where you’re comfortable and start at the appropriate level, whether you’re a total novice or looking to take your skills to the next level. And as with all ACG learning, there’s a major focus on gaining practical experience through Hands-on Labs.
