As cloud tech becomes more mainstream, securing cloud environments becomes paramount. Fortunately, Amazon Web Services includes many security services to help make IT pros’ lives easier.
Anthony Sequeria’s latest training module, AWS Solutions Architect – Security Services, is devoted to helping learners understand and leverage the security services included in AWS. You’ll learn how to use network ACLs, Trusted Advisor, and a host of other security measures.
This module is the latest in a series that maps to the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate certification exam objectives. Expanding on our the core learning principle of “One Concept, One Nugget,” CBT Nuggets now produces skill-based modules that comprise a course.
We reached out Anthony for his thoughts on his latest module.
