Course Overview
Hey there. Mark Wilkins checking in. Welcome to my class, AWS Security Operations: Designing for Acceptable Risk and Compliance, the only security class where you'll find theme music. Now I work a lot with Amazon Web Services, with different customers that are wanting to move to the cloud, and I'm certified in Amazon architecture and Amazon system operations. In this course, we're going to take a look at governance, risk, compliance regulations in the computer industry and align that to your company. When you move into Amazon, what do you have to look out for because, as we know, security is the most important thing these days when we're looking at moving to the cloud. So we'll start defining a baseline of security. We'll then take a look at how Amazon does security, what are the tools, what's their mindset, and then we'll end off with giving you the skills and ability to design your own governance infrastructure for how you're going to move to the cloud successfully. I should mention, this class is also the baseline for a new Amazon security certification starting in 2017. Sound good? Hope to see you in class.
