About This Course

The need has never been greater for information security, and this course prepares students to hit the ground running with a security team in a real-world organization. Prepare to take a deep dive into security, exploring how security applies to current networking technologies as well as investigating ways these technologies are consumed. Students will also be exposed to new authentication methods for securing user data, such as telemetry, biometrics, and nFactor authentication. Throughout the course, students will look at recent case studies of information breaches that have put a spotlight on security, especially as it relates to cloud services, virtual environments, and internet standards.

Students walk away from this course with a deep understanding of security frameworks, architecture evaluation techniques, and methodology for service-risk assessment, as well as with 30 hours of hands-on lab experience on the AWS cloud platform. In short, this course brings security into practical focus and makes cloud security more real.
