In this entry-level AWS skills training, Bart Castle covers the access management objectives in the SCS-C01 exam, which is the one required exam to earn the AWS Certified Security – Specialty certification.
Access management is fundamentally a balancing act. Not everyone should have admin access to everything, but developers and other technical professionals should be able to do their jobs. Meanwhile, users shouldn’t be allowed to wander through critical systems. The ability to authorize specific users and groups to specific resources is a central AWS security skillset, and this training will make sure you know what AWS is capable of restricting and how.
After watching this AWS security training, you'll know how to give your users the appropriate level of access, keep malicious actors out, and ensure everyone still has access to the data and services they need. This AWS security training was designed by Bart Castle to teach the entry-level skills expected of a cloud administrator, and prepare you for advancement to positions like cloud engineer.
