Ensuring the security of your operating systems and applications is a necessary preventative measure. If you're responsible for maintaining AWS applications, you need to know the methods and tools involved in securing them. Use this course to become familiar with the security controls available in AWS to protect its services. Learn how security policies and user permissions manage access to resources. See what's meant by a host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS) and a host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS). And find out how to achieve application security using hardened baselines. Moving on, study methods for monitoring and endpoint security. Then examine how AWS Firewall Manager, Amazon API Gateway, Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Detective, AWS Audit Manager, and AWS Backup work. This course helps prepare learners for the AWS Certified Developer - Associate 2021 certification exam. Upon completion, you'll know what AWS security controls you should use.
